A Favorite book and lovely covers
The book Cachalot by Alan Dean Foster is one of my favorites. Mostly because it begins with a world where whales have been given a planet of their own, to live upon and control, as a means to apologize by humans for the destruction we've caused. I love whales, maritime mammals emotionally move me, and the plight of the whale and the story of conservation is very moving to me. At one time I thought I'd become a person who would fight for the ocean mammals through art, but I am not that talented. Mr. Foster is though. And I loved the book.
These are all pics from public domain, particularly a US government website. I was going to use them as facebook cover pics, and then thought, why not use them along with the covers of CACHALOT found below to show the awesome.
I've been a fan and reader of Alan Dean Foster since I began reading science fiction or fantasy. So it is not a surprise for me that he has books in my all time favorite list. His work belongs there.
