Smithsonian scientist Nicholas Pyenson takes readers to the cutting-edge of paleontological whale research, from the fishing decks of Antarctic whaling stations to the largest fossil whalebone in the Chilean desert. His investigation of the whale's contemporary and historical experience is equal parts field work, guidebook and memoir.
