What People are Saying About This

Ann Zwinger

Everyone who's ever patted a whale needs to read this....The gray whale is a symbol for one environmental success, but it may also symbolize the great perils of failure. Serge Dedina has written an excellent book, a must-read for all who think saving gray whales is a simple issue.
— (Ann Zwinger, author of A Desert Country Near the Sea: A Natural History of the Cape Region of Baja California)

Bruce Berger

Serge Dedina threads the social and political labyrinths that surround gray whale conservation in Baja California as densely as mangroves surround the breeding lagoons. Dedina's book is required reading for anyone who would understand contemporary man's interaction with the gray whale.
— (Bruce Berger, author of Almost an Island: Travels in Baja California)
