Whales: Touching the Mystery
By Doug Thompson, Published By NewSage Press

In this set of book (160 pages) and companion DVD (30 minutes), Doug Thompson shares the unprecedented interaction between humans and the Gray Whales of San Ignacio Lagoon. This unexplained interspecies communication is what Thompson calls “touching the mystery.” He also writes about the people of San Ignacio Lagoon—the keepers of the whales—and their successes with creating livelihoods from eco-tourism, while still protecting the whales and their environment. Thompson weaves a fascinating story of personal accounts, his own and others, along with factual information on the world of whales.

 Praise

Author Doug Thompson has spent thirty years with cetaceans–studying, conserving and educating us about these fascinating mammal ‘cousins.’ Like Jacques Cousteau and other activist/naturalists, Thompson’s stories in Whales: Touching the Mystery, call us into a complex and fragile underwater world with other species who have so much to teach us about social skills, communication, and finding balance within our blue planet.
