Once, the mighty tohorā, or southern right whale, was a common sight in winter off the coast of Aotearoa. But it proved to be an easy target for the 19th-century whalers, and was soon driven to the edge of extinciton. In the 20th century, however, it became a protected species, and once commercial whaling was virtually stopped, the southern right whale made a comeback. Ned Barraud recounts this moving story in this beautifully illustrated book, a heartening and optimistic tale for every New Zealandild.
