Pawana.

"Awaité Pawana!" On whaling ships, those words mean "Whales ahead." For Captain Melville Scammon, this means money. Since he discovered that secluded cove where the giant gray whales come to raise their calves, the captain has found fame and fortune. For the whales, this has meant death. Was the captain right in exterminating the whales?

Based on a true story, this novel is about nature and the unequal fight between man and animals. Captain Scammon did exist and after whaling for many years, realized he was making a huge mistake by killing the whales. He then spent the rest of his life trying to save them.

Theme explored in this book: Adventure, Whales, whaling, protection, nature.

LDF Notes: A great collection which deals with every day life situations.



Pawana.

«Awaïté Pawana!» John, le matelot de Nantucket, oubliera-t-il jamais le cri lancé par l'homme de vigie des baleiniers? Qu'est devenue la lagune de légende où les géants des mers venaient se cacher? Pourquoi le capitaine Charles Melville Scammon a-t-il tant voulu découvrir ce lieu sans nom aussi vieux que le monde? Comment peut-on détruire ce qu'on aime? Un magnifique récit sur les baleines, l'aventure des hommes et la fragile beauté du monde. Illustré en couleurs. "Pawana" (baleine en langue nattick indienne) fut écrit en 1988 pour le théâtre. C'est l'histoire authentique de Charles Melville Scammon qui, après avoir découvert au Mexique une lagune où se reproduisaient les baleines grises, décida de les exterminer. Puis, se rendant compte qu'il commettait une erreur irréparable, il consacra sa vie à leur sauvegarde, aidé par les révolutionnaires mexicains.

Thème exploré dans cet ouvrage: baleine, sauvegarde, nature, aventure.
