Editorial Reviews

Review

"Indifferent to expense, hardship, or personal peril, Peter Heller has once again gone to the ends of the earth to give us a roistering good adventure narrative. In Captain Paul Watson, he has found an outrageous character of the high seas, a kind of modern anti-Ahab. Fearless, irascible, and immune to the concept of compromise, this spirited eco-vigilante is as refreshing on the page as he is feared and dreaded among the world's illegal whale poachers. Like its protagonist, Heller's tale moves along at full ramming speed."-- Hampton Sides, author of Ghost Soldiers and Blood and Thunder

"Two parts high-seas swashbuckle and one part inconvenient truth." -- Surfer magazine

"A story so fantastic it eclipses fiction."-- Santa Fe Reporter

"A rollicking adventure with political commentary on the plight of whales sprinkled throughout. It's hard not to be gripped by a book that contains breathless passages of imminent danger."-- Audubon

"A convincing, passionate account that both educates and infuriates." -- Kirkus

"Heller's eye-opening book...is both a riveting account of Heller's two months aboard the small, dilapidated trawler with a ragtag group of volunteers risking their lives to incapacitate a six-boat fleet of Japanese whalers and an explanation of the politics that keep commercial whalers operating."-- The Malibu Times

"The book is a swift kick to any remaining complacency about the plight of our oceans..."-- National Geographic Adventure

"Heller paints a passionate picture of the plight of the world's oceans and the creatures who dwell within them. The book almost certainly will raise the reader's consciousness and ire."-- Rocky Mountain News (Denver)

"[Heller] does a masterful job of balancing the journalistic details of this voyage with background -- sympathetic, but not fawning -- on Watson and his crewmembers and the larger issues that Watson's crusade raises."-- Riverfront Times (St. Louis)

"The adventure and the all-star cast of characters aside, the heart of this book is Heller's gripping account of the world's oceans. Aboard the Farley Mowat, Heller gains insight into the claim that if current fishing practices and pollution trends continue, 'every fishery in the world's oceans will collapse by 2048.'"-- Sacramento News & Review
