5.0 out of 5 stars On the Trail of the Whale, 25 Oct 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: On the Trail of the Whale (Paperback)
I have read a few books in my time but never have I picked up a book and was so thoroughly absorbed in the adventures that Mark Carwardine embarked on from the very first page. Be it watching southern right whales from his bed in South Africa to dodging the bullets in Tamil you can't help but feel you're there with him.
Each story takes you to a part of the world that has either embraced whale watching with open arms or still has a lot to learn on how to respect these beautiful creatures.
The whale watching "bandwagon" is perceived so differently in each part of the world and Carwardine uncovers what areas treat the whales with respect and others that see them purely for personal greed.
The stories make you laugh, they make you want to cry and they provoke you in a way that you would not think possible.
It is extremely informative as one would expect from the author and the photos are first class.
Carwardine gives you an insight to the whales/dolphins behaviour like you've never experienced before and it makes you realise how gentle these giants really are.
If you are in any way interested in whales and dolphins and want to know what it's like to really get to know them, and the people that care for them, then buy this book.

This review is from: On the Trail of the Whale (Paperback)
This is an inspiring, informative and sometimes very funny account of Mark's experiences while watching whales. It is very readable and communicates his incredible enthusiasm for all whales and dolphins (which I totally share)
