What the Critics Say

"Part natural history, poetry and ecologic statement, Heathcote Williams's presentation is a moving audio. Listeners will learn and think about whales as never before." (AudioFile) "Whales play for three times as long as they spend time searching for food- delicate, involved games with floating seabirds' feathers thrown high into the air and logs of wood flipped from the tops of their heads, carried in their teeth for a game of tag, ranging across the entire Pacific.' This is a must-have audio." (The Guardian)
