With an uncomplicated and clear delivery, narrator Peter Lerman takes the listener on a deep and cold dive under and around miles and miles of Arctic Ocean ice. He's in search of one of the most mysterious and elusive creatures on earth--the narwhal, a 2,100-pound whale with a tusk, actually a tooth, that can grow up to 10 feet in length. In medieval times the narwhal's tusk was thought to have magical power and was likened to a unicorn's horn. Lerman's voice brightens at the author's appreciation and admiration for both the native Inuit culture that reveres and still hunts the narwhal and the scientists who brave the cold to study ways to protect it from climate change. Perfect listening for the armchair naturalist. B.P. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2022]
