Mark Leiren-Young taught a class I was enrolled at in Victoria, BC, and when I found out he published a book on killer whales I picked up a copy and read it. I've never been a person who cared about the environment, or where my food comes from, or what's happening out in the ocean. I've never cared much about what's happening in my own community, really. But there was a scene in this book that really humanizes the animals I'd only ever known as the new logo to the Vancouver Canucks that I didn't like as much as the old one. I don't want to spoil the scene, but for those who read the book it's the part involving the bridge.
This book will inspire ideas in you that you never had before. Unless you're already as passionate as Mark, in which case it will reinforce that passion and push you to fight harder for what you care about. The Killer Whale Who Changed the World will change your world, so be ready for it when you start reading.
