"In the waters surrounding Antarctica, a lethal practice continues. Despite an international moratorium on commercial whaling, one fleet in the Southern Ocean persists in hunting and killing whales. The Whaling Season recounts the extraordinary efforts to intercept that fleet and halt the slaughter in one of the Earth's last great wilderness areas."
"Kieran Mulvaney has led four expeditions to stop whaling. In The Whaling Season, he offers a vivid account of the voyages in all their drama, disappointment, strain, and elation, giving readers a behind-the-scenes look at the hazards and triumphs of life as an environmental activist. Drawing on the history of commercial whaling and polar exploration, the development of Greenpeace, and broader scientific and political efforts to conserve marine life, The Whaling Season is both an engrossing tale of adventure and an impassioned plea for protection of some of the world's most spectacular creatures."--Jacket.
