The orca is one of Earth's most intelligent animals. Remarkably sophisticated, they have languages and cultures and even long-term memories. Their capacity for echolocation is nothing short of a sixth sense. Despite their label as 'killer whales' they are often benign and gentle, which makes the story of the captive-orca industry and the endangerment of their population around the world that much more tragic. In Of Orcas and Men, David Neiwert provides a compelling mix of cultural history, environmental reporting and scientific research on a majestic species. He explores the sometimes fraught relationship between this extraordinary animal and human beings, both in the wild and in captivity. David Neiwert's book is a triumph of reporting, observation and research, and a powerful tribute to one of the animal kingdom's most remarkable members.
