Benign and gentle, with their own languages and cultures, orcas’ amazing capacity for long-term memory and, arguably, compassion, makes the ugly story of the captive-orca industry especially damning. In Of Orcas and Men, a marvelously compelling mix of cultural history, environmental reporting, and scientific research, David Neiwert explores how this extraordinary species has come to capture our imaginations—and the catastrophic environmental consequences of that appeal. In the tradition of Barry Lopez’s classic Of Wolves and Men, David Neiwert’s book is a powerful tribute to one of the animal kingdom’s most remarkable members.

Two dead bodies, seemingly unconnected, are found within a week on Orcas Island, a San Juan Island off the coast of Washington. Border concerns with Canada, bizarre murders, coupled with teenage kidnapping and runaways prompt the local authorities to call in experts, agents Bev and Brian Moore. These specialists in foreign intrigue are diverted from their international assignment in Italy to pose as journalists for a criminal investigation on the island. Clues lead to discovery of terrorist tactics and the attempted recruitment of teens into a quagmire of ruthless behavior. Aileen Nowatzki is a Californian writer of novels of intrigue. She received her MA in French and has worked as a teacher, a college instructor, a translator and a director of religious education. Extensive travel with her husband spans three continents and has provided her with a unique perspective on multi-cultural issues. Volunteerism is an important part of her weekly activities. Three children and young grandchildren keep her very active.

From the New York Times bestselling author of Evidence of Harm and Animal Factory—a groundbreaking scientific thriller that exposes the dark side of SeaWorld, America's most beloved marine mammal park Death at SeaWorld centers on the battle with the multimillion-dollar marine park industry over the controversial and even lethal ramifications of keeping killer whales in captivity. Following the story of marine biologist and animal advocate at the Humane Society of the US, Naomi Rose, Kirby tells the gripping story of the two-decade fight against PR-savvy SeaWorld, which came to a head with the tragic death of trainer Dawn Brancheau in 2010. Kirby puts that horrific animal-on-human attack in context. Brancheau's death was the most publicized among several brutal attacks that have occurred at Sea World and other marine mammal theme parks. Death at SeaWorld introduces real people taking part in this debate, from former trainers turned animal rights activists to the men and women that champion SeaWorld and the captivity of whales. In section two the orcas act out. And as the story progresses and orca attacks on trainers become increasingly violent, the warnings of Naomi Rose and other scientists fall on deaf ears, only to be realized with the death of Dawn Brancheau. Finally he covers the media backlash, the eyewitnesses who come forward to challenge SeaWorld's glossy image, and the groundbreaking OSHA case that challenges the very idea of keeping killer whales in captivity and may spell the end of having trainers in the water with the ocean's top predators.

We see the bloodshed, the hatred, the greed, the ruthless brutality in the world, and then we look to see who is making or letting this madness happen. We find that male excesses, not male needs - certainly not women's and children's needs - drive the world.
