What the Legacy of Captive Killer Whales Reveals about Us
In this non-fiction book, I investigate our interesting relationship with the killer whale by exploring the topic in a rather non-traditional way. The narrative follows the life of a friend of mine: small-town-girl-turned-orca-trainer. Her world is one of beauty and tragedy. I draw on many books, interviews, and personal records to tell this story.
The publication date is not set; it is a long-term project. It keeps me sane between days of CS research and coursework
