"Chadwick has followed and reported on whales for more than a decade, and in The Grandest of Lives he offers an insider's view of modern-day scientific whale observation - from data gathering to weathering storms, and from spirited scientific debate to expedition storytelling. In detailed portraits of five whale species that represent a cross section of the forms and behaviors of cetaceans worldwide - the humpback, northern bottlenose, blue whale, minke whale, and orca - Chadwick moves
from natural history to more personal observations, clearly communicating, his fondness and admiration for these mammoth masters of the sea, as well as the sheer joy of being among them."--BOOK JACKET.
