Into Great Silence is a great book about the Exxon Valdez oil spill of 1989 and how it impacted the killer whales - specifically one pod that has not seen the birth of a calf since the spill.
Spirits of the Coast is another great book about killer whales! This book brings together the work of marine biologists, Indigenous knowledge keepers, poets, artists, and storytellers, united by their enchantment with the orca. AND Emma has pictures featured in this book!
