WAR OF THE WHALES A True Story

by | Read by Holter Graham

Contemporary Culture • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Using a sweeping range of sources, Horwitz’s story recounts the scientific and legal struggle to get the U.S. Navy to recognize the havoc it causes marine mammals with active sonar exercises. Holter Graham’s gruff, nasal narration conveys the emotional intensity of whale rescues, late-night whale autopsies, and courtroom battles. His clear and intimate narration is a perfect match for Horwitz’s heartbreaking yet hopeful story. He seems entirely at home with the specialized vocabulary of whale science. Beginning with the mass stranding of rare beaked whales in the Bahamas in 2000, the story continues by dramatic twists and turns through the Supreme Court's opinion in Winter v. NRDC in 2008, and beyond. This story is not over. F.C. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2014]
