5.0 out of 5 stars Description: from front inside dust cover 2 Jan 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
An extraordinary work in which the friendly and intimate relationship between man and whales gives way to wonder and awe as Captain Cousteau recounts his expeditions accross the oceans of the world in search of the mightiest creature to have ever lived.
Beginning with a fascinating look at some of the remarkable qualities of the whale - its size and the power implied by such enormous proportions, its high level of intelligence, its general lack of aggressiveness and ferocity, and its paradoxical fragility and dependence on the sea, the adventures of the Calllypso team are captured on film and in an absorbing narrative, describing encounters with whales in the Pacific and Indian oceans, including the gray whale and the killer whale.
The result is an unforgettable picture of a creature whose role in the precarious balance of the seas has been misunderstood since ancient times. It is also a creature in criical danger of extinction and Captain Cousteau closes with a passionate plea for its preservation.
