A Whale for the Killing by Farley Mowat A Whale for the Killing

Farley Mowat

Price: CDN$14.95

Book Description
Humanity’s contempt for nature is a topic that has often occupied noted conservationist and best-selling author Farley Mowat’s challenging mind. This book, first published in the 1970s, chronicles the ardent environmentalist’s experiences with both nature and human nature in an incident off Newfoundland’s coast. After an 80-ton fin whale ended up trapped in a lagoon, the locals had their way with her, shooting her up with guns and even slicing open her back. Fatally injured, the whale became Mowat’s personal crusade as he tried to get politicians, police, the press, marine biologists and even the townspeople to pay attention to the tragedy. Sadly for the whale, international attention came too late. But in his efforts to educate the masses about the need for respect for marine life and whales in particular, Mowat, the author of many books about the natural world, wrote the powerful and affecting plea A Whale for the Killing.
