Description
As economist Andrew Stevenson and his young daughter Elsa watched a 45-ton humpback launch itself out of the water off of a Bermudan beach, she asked, "Why does it do that?" This was the spark behind Stevenson's personal challenge—and ultimately overriding passion—to film the whales underwater during their annual migrations. Though no marine biologist, his resulting film Where the Whales Sing and his ongoing Humpback Whale Research Project (WhalesBermuda.com) have nonetheless provided remarkable scientific evidence. This book is both a survey of Stevenson's unparalleled observations and photos and a record of the personal interactions between Stevenson's family and the whales they love.

"Courageous, scientific and inspirational. Andrew has skillfully woven a riveting personal account of his experiences with these incredible creatures which makes readers feel as though they are in the water right next to him. Whale Song highlights just how much we have yet to learn about the world's oceans and the species found in them, and the profound and irreversible impacts we humans are having on them."—Greg Stone

"Andrew Stevenson's great achievement is to show how someone with energy and persistence can make a solid contribution to knowledge about any animal that lives in their back yard—even when that animal is the humpback whale and that back yard, the North Atlantic. In four years Andrew has identified more than twice as many humpback whales around Bermuda as we scientists identified in those waters in the previous 40 years."—Roger Payne
