The northeastern seaboard of Canada and the United States, extending from Labrador to Cape Cod, was the first region of North America to suffer from human exploitation. Farley Mowat, who has observed this region closely over the past forty years, supplements the extensive historical and biological research on the subject with his direct experience of the natural world. When it was first published nearly twenty years ago, Sea of Slaughter served as a warning to humanity and a catalyst for environmental reform, raising awareness of the decline and destruction of marine and coastal species. As timely today as it was on first publication, this classic is now available to a new generation of readers. Book jacket.

A kind of non-human history of North America. Mowat traces the stories of various animal species (and the destruction thereof) from their abundance before the arrival of white settlers to their present-day state. The book is carefully and exhaustively detailed to provide the reader with a sense of the magnitude, diversity, and beauty of North America's wildlife and the sheer tragedy of its fate. There is no beating around the bush here. Highly recommended.
