In coastal villages along the St. Lawrence River, gentle breezes signal the coming of spring -- and the arrival of the first whales.

Evelyne Daigle, respected biologist and educator, explores the mysteries of the St. Lawrence River and the whales that migrate there annually.

Did you know that
•Whales descend from a hairy doglike land mammal?
•More than a dozen different species of whale migrate to the St. Lawrence each year?
•In the early 1900s, there were over 5,000 beluga whales in the St. Lawrence? Today they number between 700 and 1,200 and are on the endangered species list.

Detailed illustrations by well-known wildlife artist Daniel Grenier and informative sidebars round out this fascinating look at some of the world's most mysterious creatures.
