The northeastern seaboard of North America, extending from Labrador to Cape Cod, was the first region of North America to suffer from human exploitation. Farley Mowat informs the extensive historical and biological research with his direct experience living in and observing this region. When it was first published nearly thirty years ago, Sea of Slaughter served as a catalyst for environment reform, raising awareness of the decline and destruction of marine and coastal species. Today, it remains a prescient and chilling environmental classic, serving, now as ever, as a haunting reminder of the impact of human interest on the natural world.

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.
