Pete Bethune, who resigned from Sea Shepherd earlier this month, has released his new book “Whale Warrior”; billed as a tell-all behind the dramatic events that occurred in the Southern Ocean last year. From the site,
“In a frank account filled with high action, humour and emotion, Pete Bethune describes the events which led up to the ramming of Sea Shepherd’s the Ady Gil,his dramatic boarding, detention on the Shonan Maru, arrest on arrival in Tokyo and subsequent long ordeal in jail awaiting trial and sentencing.”
While the book literally just came out, at least one commenter over on the Planet Oceans Alliance forum gave it an early thumbs up saying, “I actually had the pleasure of reading some of it last week when he was in LA. It’s an absolute awesome read.”
Bethune, who recently announced plans to look into building a successor to the Ady Gil, is focusing on continuing his ocean conservation work with a possible campaign in the Faroe islands next year.
