Gift of the Whale: The Inupiat Bowhead Hunt, a Sacred Tradition


by: Bill Hess
Photographer and writer Bill Hess shares a deeply moving portrait of a remote region, its people, and whale-hunting, one of the oldest and most sacred cultural traditions.

The Inupiat Eskimos on the north coast of Alaska have been hunting whales since the beginning of time. Their way of life has evolved around the seasonal cycle of ice and migration, and Bill Hess offers us a rare look at this difficult yet beautiful culture. His duotone photographs of the Inupiat, the harsh Arctic landscape, wildlife, and subsistence hunting are powerful, remarkable images that illustrate the importance of whaling to a people who continue to survive, and to find joy in their survival, against great odds.

200-Year-Old Bowhead Whales!

Bowhead whales are amazing creatures that often live lives longer than humans! These whales live in Arctic waters near the North Pole, smashing through thick ice to reach the surface to breathe. Using their baleen, these large mammals feed on tiny animals swimming in the cold waters, while thick blubber keeps them warm in frigid temperatures. Readers explore their everyday lives using the latest scientific research about these long-living animals, and colorful photographs show these gigantic creatures and their unique features up close and personal.

The Nature Company Guides WHALES, DOLPHINS & PORPOISES reveals a world of complex adaptations and fascinating methods of social interaction. Researchers studying these creatures that "sing," whistle, groan, or chirp as they traverse vast expanses of ocean still have much to learn.
