Audible Editor Reviews

Part natural history, poetry and ecologic statement, Heathcote Williams's presentation is a moving audio. Listeners will learn and think about whales as never before. In addition, this is a breakthrough in format for audio programs. The presentation combines commentary and prose with historical reference and facts. Williams departs from current forms of spoken audio and opens a realm of possibilities. Listeners will be fascinated by the stunning program, and producers should take note of the possibilities showcased in the format.

Publisher's Summary

Whale Nation is a hymn to the beauty, intelligence, and majesty of the largest mammal on earth. A "green classic" read with natural resonance by its author, it rarely fails to strike a chord in the hearts of those concerned with the abuse of our planet.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

What the Critics Say

"Part natural history, poetry and ecologic statement, Heathcote Williams's presentation is a moving audio. Listeners will learn and think about whales as never before." (AudioFile) "Whales play for three times as long as they spend time searching for food- delicate, involved games with floating seabirds' feathers thrown high into the air and logs of wood flipped from the tops of their heads, carried in their teeth for a game of tag, ranging across the entire Pacific.' This is a must-have audio." (The Guardian)
