Raised in a remote seaside village, Thomas Witka Just marries Ruth, his beloved since infancy. But an ill-fated decision to fight in Vietnam changes his life forever: cut off from his Native American community, he fathers a child with another woman. When he returns home a hero, he finds his tribe in conflict over the decision to hunt a whale, both a symbol of spirituality and rebirth and a means of survival. In the end, he reconciles his two existences, only to see tragedy befall the son he left behind.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"With her unparalleled gifts for truth and magic, Linda Hogan reinforces my faith in reading, writing, living." -- Barbara Kingsolver
"Hauntingly wise, beautifully written, and fiercely tender, People of the Whale goes between realms of animal and human, between Native and non-Native, between the radiant world as it once was and still might become. This book is a bridge, a revelation, an open heart." -- Brenda Peterson, author of Build Me an Ark: A Life with Animals
"People of the Whale is pure magic-and pure truth. It's as perfect as a smooth stone." -- Sy Montgomery, author of The Good Good Pig
"Powerful...Hogan employs just the right touch of spiritualism in this engrossing tale." -- Publishers Weekly
"Dream-like...While filled with heartbreaking events, the novel has a life-affirming spirit that makes the journey worthwhile." -- Library Journal
