The northeastern seaboard of the United States and Canada, from Cape Cod to Labrador, was the first region in North America to suffer from human exploitation. In this timeless narrative, Farley Mowat describes in harrowing detail the devastation inflicted upon the birds, whales, fish, and mammals of this icy coast -- from polar bears and otters to cod, seals, and ducks. Since its first publication some 20 years ago, this powerful work has served as both a warning to humanity and an inspiration for change.

A kind of non-human history of North America. Mowat traces the stories of various animal species (and the destruction thereof) from their abundance before the arrival of white settlers to their present-day state. The book is carefully and exhaustively detailed to provide the reader with a sense of the magnitude, diversity, and beauty of North America's wildlife and the sheer tragedy of its fate. There is no beating around the bush here. Highly recommended.
