Whaling Season A Year in the Life of an Arctic Whale Whaling Season is a highly visual and informative narrative about the adventure of scientists, whales, and life in the Arctic It often had me thinking fondly of my home province of Newfoundland, which also features a unique landscape and once too used to depend on the ocean for its livelihood.

    1. I'm on a mission to read as many of the Scientists in the Field series as I can, and this is one of them. Peter Lourie writes about the work of John Craighead George (sound familiar? yes, it's children's author Jean Craighead George's oldest son) in Barrow, Alaska, as he researches the bowhead whale. He and his wife Cyd, also a whale researcher, live with the Eskimos there, and take specimens from every whale they kill. They also do aerial counts, and have determined that Eskimo whaling is susta [...]


    2. The life of an Arctic whale scientist. John Craighead George. Alaska. In his recent presentation about adventure writing, Peter Laurie emphasized that appeal of his career lay in the information he learned, the people he met, and the places he visited. The same holds true for me in my reading of his nonfiction text, Whaling Season.It takes years to become a whale scientist. As part of this position, one tries to answer questions about the unique biology of whales. In March, the itch begins for w [...]


    3. Whaling Season gives readers information about the job of an Arctic Whale Scientist. It has a lot of pictures and gives a lot of really detailed information. Evaluation: I did not really enjoy this book. It had a lot of information, and I do not think a child would want to read this book. It also has very graphic images of dead whales. I think that these images would be upsetting to children. It is also irrelevant to children in this area because it is unlikely that they will ever be or have the [...]


    4. “Save the whales” becomes “eat the whales” within the pages of Whaling Season, a nonfiction book directed toward older juvenile readers. Although purporting to inform readers about scientists studying the bowhead whale, Season is primarily a polemic in favor of hunting and killing whales.The book follows John Craighead George, a researcher who lives alongside Inuit whalers, inspecting the butchered remains of the animals’ bodies. The book takes essentially the same position as the Japa [...]


    5. John Craighead George, known as Craig to friends, is a scientist living in Barrow, Alaska. John's main job there is to research the bowhead whale, a whale integral to the life and culture of the Iñupiaq who also live up there. The Iñupiaq hunt the bowhead whale in the spring and fall, using all of it's parts for food and tools. Craig, the Iñupiaq, and the International Whaling Commission (IWC) have a deal, after a bowhead whale is harpooned by someone in the tribe, Craig is allowed to ask the [...]


    6. Grades: 4th - 6thI enjoyed reading this book mainly because I was "transported" into a different world. I think young readers will benefit from receiving a rich story following John Craighead George, an Artic whale scientist, and his adventures in the Artic. The photography is captivating, informing the reader of certain processes Craig and his team go through, as well as the scope of the environment and animals that surround them. The book also has a nice glossary and index, making things easy [...]


    7. Genre: InformationalSummary: This book depicts the life of scientist Craig George, the Inupiaq people, and the bowhead whale.A. As an informational book, this book delivers. B. This is a great read because it has an immense amount of information on the bowhead whale, the Inupiaq community, and the scientist featured in the book, Craig George. Also, the author uses pictures and diagrams to clarify information presented in the text. At the end of the book their is a vast glossary and index to expl [...]


    8. Following a year in the life of John Craighead George (son of children's author Jean), this book describes the Inupiat process of hunting and harvesting bowhead whales and how scientists piggyback on their hunts to study the whales. It provides an interesting look into a place and people that kids might not know much about. It combines well-researched information with great photos to bring another scientist to life for tweens - just what we've come to expect from the Scientists in the Field seri [...]


    9. A great book for middle school readers especially if they are interested in science and/or whales. The pictures match up with the text and the whole thing gives a glimpse into life at the top of the world. I also like the emphasis the book gives to the scientists and the elders working together, both in the present and in the past. I think it might be a little glamorized, just a little.


    10. This book provides a look into the lives of the residents of Barrow, Alaska and their dependence on the bowhead whale as seen by an arctic whale scientist. Great photographs will engage the reader and the glossary will help them understand the many technical terms. The scientist in the book is John Craighead George, son of the children’s author Jean Craighead George.


    11. This is a very interesting look at whaling with the research that comes along with the first whaling of Spring each year in Barrow, Alaska. great book of facts and photographs!!!Whale blubber, anyone?


    12. I think my interest and enjoyment of this book were enhanced by just having seen Whales/Tohora a major exhibit on whales and whaling in the South Pacific at the Museum of Science.




    13. Yet another great addition to the Scientists in the Field series. I love all of these books. Be warned, though, this one may be a bit much for those who are squeamish.
