AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This is a story of the orca, the largest of the dolphin family. Known as killer whales, the orcas' relationship with the Aboriginal whalers of Twofold Bay has become legend. Man and orcas were partners in the same chase, herding whales to their bloody death at the end of a harpoon spear. (Libraries Australia)
