Whale NationJean-Albert Lievre

A humpback whale is beached on a remote shore. The struggle to save his life is the start of a journey of discovery into the special world of these extraordinary creatures, denizens of the world’s oceans. Inspired by Heathcote Williams' book, Whale Nation reveals a hidden world. A breathtaking journey into unexplored territories where these giants turn out to have incredibly rich and complex social lives in a society we know very little about.
