InThousand Mile Song, musician and philosopher David Rothenberg uses the enigma of whale sounds to explore whether we can truly understand nonhuman minds. Interviewing scholars around the world as they attempt to decipher underwater music, Rothenberg tells the story of scientists and artists confronting an unknown as vast as the ocean. Along the way, he plays his clarinet live with whales in their native habitats, from Russia to Hawaii, making interspecies music that appears on the included CD. Richly detailed and deeply entertaining,Thousand Mile Songis an imaginative look at the most intriguing creatures of the ocean.

David Rothenberg is Professor of Philosophy at the New Jersey Institute of Technology andfounder of the Terra Nova book series. His most recent books are Alwaysthe Mountains and Sudden Music: Improvisation, Art and Nature.
