Journalist Robert Sullivan
Journalist Robert Sullivan. His first book, The Meadowlands (now in paperback) an urban adventure in the wilds of the marshy dumping area between New Jersey and New York was praised for its wit, imagination and intelligence. His new book A Whale Hunt (Scribner) chronicles the two years he spent watching the Makah Indian tribe in Washington state as they prepared for and attempted their first whale hunt in over 70 years. But they didnt do it alone: they were surrounded by angry protestors and hounded by the press.
