Product Description

Synopsis

A first-hand account of an anti-driftnet campaign in the North Pacific led by the environmental activist Paul Weston, who founded the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society in 1977 and has since devoted his life to protecting endangered fish and marine mammals.

From the Publisher

A look at the world's environmental Robin Hood
Paul Watson has devoted his life to protecting our endangered oceans, and Earth Warrior is the story of an eco-hero for our time. With 13 of 17 principal fishing areas worldwide depleted or in steep decline, our oceans are being pushed to the brink of extinction. In 1977, Paul Watson founded the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and has since devoted his life to protecting endangered fish and marine animals.

Earth Warrior is the story of one of Watson's many voyages bent on disrupting business as usual on the high seas. Author David B. Morris offers this first-hand account of an anti-driftnet campaign in the North Pacific that combines action and adventure with a look at Watson, easily the world's most committed environmental activist. In addition, Morris tallies up the latest environmental score and asks hard questions of Watson--and readers--about how far we should go to stop the earth's destruction.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Frank André Bremnes on 9 Feb. 2010
Format: Paperback
This book tells the story of a Sea Shepherd campaign in the early 90's, when Watson and his crew went hunting for illegal driftnetters in the North Pacific.

What you need to know about this book, is that it's very personal from the author's point of view. And this is where the book fails. Morris spends alot of time telling the reader how he feels about everything that is going on - especially about his fears and anxieties - when he instead should have used the (few) pages of the book to descibe Watson and his cause. Because that is what I as a reader was interested in.

To have a personal perspective when writing a book like this is in it self not a bad idea. Since Watson is far from ordinary and "normal", this would clearly bring out the differences between him and the author (the author being a person more like your average reader of this book). But it's just too much.

Still: All the personal stuff aside, it was still an okay read. But I would recommed you read "The Whale Warriors" by Peter Heller, which is also a tale about a Sea Shepherd campaign. Only better.

I couldn't put this book down and wanted to share it with friends who I knew would be interested in it. For any Sea Shepherd fans, this is a must read.

So Irrititating, I Couldn't Even Finish It 11 Sept. 2009
By Alison V - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is written from the first person perspective of the author and that ends up being its downfall. If he spent half the time writing about the seals that he spent complaining about his own problems, it might have been readable.

If you want to learn more about Paul Watson and the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society from an outsider perspective, I'd recommend The Whale Warriors: The Battle at the Bottom of the World to Save the Planet's Largest Mammals, though I really think Captain Watson tells the story much better himself in his books Sea Shepherd and Seal Wars: Twenty-five Years on the Front Lines with the Harp Seals.

Uplifting story based on fact 28 Mar. 2006
By J. Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is one of the few uplifting stories based on reality and not fiction. It's the story of a tag-along onboard Paul Watson's sea vessel. Paul Watson is a modern-day pirate who patrols international waters and interferes with/or shuts down illegal fishing and hunting. The concept is interesting by itself, but this book puts that idea into a real world situtation involving confrontations in the middle of the ocean where there are no laws. Watson is an inspiration for our generation... who else do you know that attacks Japanese whaling ships?

Some of the story-telling by the author is sub-par, but the content definitely keeps you going. Definitely recommend.

Every aspiring Earth Warrior should read this 27 May 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Lots of good quotes, inspiration, and facts in this. I actually even read it with a highlighter. It's such fast/easy reading and such good brain food that I would recommend it to everyone. If you're looking for a book about confrontations though, this might not be for you. This one touches on a short campaign to stop driftnets with only a brief chapter about the actual confrontation. The experience described and the collective words of wisdom the writer gained through his interactions with the different crew members is the real heart of this book and is truly fantastic to read.

Amazing man 25 Sept. 2010
By Janet Avery - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an amazing book about an amazing man actually doing what most of us only think about.

His commitment to making a difference for these animals by physically doing what needs to be done is outstanding. This book needs to be on your bookshelf if you have any desire to see the earth and its animals respected, and cared for.
