A richly illustrated story, "A Tale of Two Orca" allows you, the reader to travel into the depths of a realm rarely experienced by man or woman. Join Darius and Fila, killer whales and lovers for life on a journey into a world not a great deal unlike our own. It is a tale of one family's devotion, love, heroism, and betrayal. "A Tale of Two Orca" is a love story in the most classic sense. A story that will captivate you from the opening paragraph and leave you believing we are not the only civilized, intelligent beings on this planet capable of equally wondrous and horrific behavior. Mr. Edwards' imaginative portrayal of the day-to-day trials and tribulations embodied within the pod as well as each individual orca will give readers a new found appreciation for the thoughts, and emotions that must exist, at some level, within all living things.
Images from Free Willy and captive killer whales performing at Sea World don’t tell the real story of these marvelous creatures. With their vast bulk and “killer” instincts, these predators — weighing up to ten tons and eating more than 100 pounds of food a day — rule their underwater world. This lively book introduces young readers to every aspect of these singular beasts, from their surprising social arrangements (living in lifelong family groups) to their pod-specific dialects to their awesome methods of killing prey. Photos by noted wildlife cinematographer Jeff Foott include rare shots of killer whale behavior.
