Description: Any culture that has had contact with the sea has told tales of whales, portraying them as massive, strong, mysterious creatures of the deep. Though these people had little scientific research or details on whale behavior, they respected the creature for its size and strength.

A collection of narratives and images, The Spirit of the Whale looks at the unique human-whale relationship through the written word, showing how different cultures have viewed and treated whales through the ages and how they have communicated these views through myths and stories. In addition, it briefly explores the whale's natural history, the whaling industry and how it treated the whale, and the conservation issues the whale faces.

Together with the text, the remarkable four-color images of whales, black-and-white historical photographs, multicultural artifacts, and artwork truly capture the spirit of the whale.
