KIRKUS REVIEW

A utilitarian survey of marine mammals, beginning with a review of their evolutionary adaptation to living in the sea and ending with a description of their behavior in captivity and their employment as subjects of scientific investigation. In between are separate chapters on seals, dolphins, whales, etc., which draw on various sources of information from research scientists to Eskimo hunters. None of this is made as stimulating or lively as it might be, but it's a clear and respectable compilation of information.
