A Whale Hunt; Robert Sullivan
- Unit Price
New York-based freelance writer Sullivan ( Meadowlands ) chronicles two years he spent at the center of a controversy that pitted two cherished ideals against each other protecting whales and preserving ancestral practice. The Makah, on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State, resumed hunting the gray whale in the traditional manner when it was taken off the endangered species list in 1995; animal rights advocates arrived to protest. There is no index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
