The Secret World of Whales takes readers deep into the history of human encounters with whales. In conjunction with the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), Charles Siebert illuminates the latest research on these gentle giants. Readers will discover scientific findings that suggest that the human brain and the whale brain are surprisingly similar. They will dive into stories from fiction and legend, as well as real-life tales of ships raised in the air on the back of a whale. With masterful storytelling and impressive photographs, this comprehensive book brings new light to the mysterious underwater world of whales.
Charles Siebert is a New York City-based journalist and poet who has written four books and contributed to the New York Times Magazine and the New Yorker, among others. His fascination with whales developed during a 2009 trip to Baja, Mexico, where he had many face-to-face encounters with Pacific gray whales.
