Voyage of the Bangarang

The Great Bear Sea is a flooded mountain range where whales have made a comeback. Captain Keen and his small sailboat crew pilot the research vessel Bangarang as it races to gather information before an oil tanker route changes this place forever. What they will find is much bigger than they could have guessed.
