About the Book

Follow the very personal and intimate journey of Dr. Urmas Kaldveer as he is drawn by forces outside himself to engage with the great whales. From straight research scientist, Dr. Kaldveer begins to relate to, and with, the whales, to find that a change has taken place in himself. What started as analytical science became a healing journey. Enjoy his stories of "close encounters" and the revelations they engendered.
