The orca is one of Earth's most intelligent animals. Remarkably
sophisticated, they have languages and cultures and even long-term

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.
