Overview

The northeastern seaboard of North America, extending from Labrador to Cape Cod, was the first region of North America to suffer from human exploitation. Farley Mowat informs the extensive historical and biological research with his direct experience living in and observing this region. When it was first published nearly thirty years ago, Sea of Slaughter served as a catalyst for environment reform, raising awareness of the decline and destruction of marine and coastal species. Today, it remains a prescient and chilling environmental classic, serving, now as ever, as a haunting reminder of the impact of human interest on the natural world.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Two different sides of Mowat. While the author is immediately linked with nature stories, And No Bird Sang is his firsthand account of fighting in World War II. In Slaughter, Mowat returns to familiar territory as he chronicles the ecological devastation of the northeastern seaboard. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
From the Publisher
"Mowat's most important book yet." - Roger Tory Peterson

From the Publisher
"In this masterpiece, Canada's most beloved naturalist-author is as angry about the assault on the living sea as Rachel Carson was about the land in Silent Spring." — Roger Tory Peterson
