Description

On the southwest coast of Newfoundland, a rare fin whale, one of the few truly majestic creatures remaining in the ocean, became trapped in a saltwater lagoon and fell victim to local hunters. Farley Mowat relates the tragic story of his attempt to save the trapped whale from the pointless sport of a handful of individuals who poured many hundreds of rounds of ammunition into the animal. Calling on all his powers as a writer, Mowat shares his anger but also his hopes for an end to commercial whaling.
