Most pop songs average three minutes, but what about whale songs?
Like a symphony, Humpback whale songs may last 20-30 minutes. Learn
about whales and their encounters with humans. Listen to a true tale
of 3,000 whales trapped in the arctic, rescued by Eskimos and classical
music. Hear Steve's unforgettable "Whale
Trilogy (.mp3)" - a solo violin piece played with these mysterious
songs of the deep. Includes a signed copy of Steve's award-winning
book, A Symphony of Whales. We also recommend
visiting An Author's Interview.
