 In The Breath of a Whale, Leigh Calvez tells the story of orcas, blue whales, and other Pacific Ocean giants through the work of dedicated researchers who have spent decades tracking them along their secretive routes that extend for thousands of miles, gleaning their habits and sounds and distinguishing peculiarities. 

Leigh Calvez has worked with whales and dolphins as a scientist, naturalist, and nature writer. As a scientist, she was Research Director for the Ocean Mammal Institute. As a naturalist, Leigh has worked on whale watch boats in Massachusetts, Hawaii, and in the San Juan Islands of Washington State. Her first book is The Hidden Lives of Owls (Sasquatch Books), which was a 2016 Washington State Book Award finalist and a New York Times and Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association bestseller.
