When award-winning writer Rebecca Giggs encountered a humpback whale stranded on her local beachfront in Australia, she began to wonder how the lives of whales reflect the condition of our oceans. The result of that curiosity, Fathoms, is a prismatic meditation on the astounding lives of whales, revealing what they can teach us about ourselves, our planet, and our relationships to other species. Blending natural history, philosophy, and science, Giggs gives us a vivid exploration of the natural world even as she addresses what i means to write about nature at a time of environmental crisis. With depth and clarity, Giggs outlines the challenges we face as we attempt to understand the perspectives of other living beings and our own place on an evolving planet.
