A compelling, in-depth account of how Sea Shepherd Conservation Society fought to defend and protect whales from human predators who hunt and murder then under the false pretense of Indigenous rights. In the process of discharging its duties, the organization has created global enemies and allies and, by necessity, has put its staff and vessels in harm’s way. Reading like an electrifying adventure tale, this true-life logbook reveals how one community, the Makah (located on Washington’s Olympic peninsula), has attempted to circumvent international whaling laws by invoking outmoded cultural entitlements for the sole purpose of killing, rather than for sustenance or survival. Captain Paul Watson discloses his deeply personal motivations and explains why the organization’s mission is both urgent and essential.
