Description
 
Robert Sullivan (au). A fascinating account of the controversial Makah tribal whale hunt by an outside observer. Robert Sullivan spent two years on the Olympic Peninsula in the Pacific Northwest with the Makah & their canoe. In this book he provides a perceptive, even-handed description of the overwhelming obstacles the Makah tribal whale hunters faced -- nasty racism, limited finances (they don’t have casinos), cadres of wealthy animal rights protesters, & the usual tribal bickering. In this sensitive, moving & sad account, Sullivan writes about the difficulties of keeping a cultural & tribal tradition alive in the present day.
