Investigative journalist and author David Neiwert is no stranger to the Northwest. Raised in Idaho Falls, he got his start writing for newspapers in Washington, Idaho and Montana. Since, he’s won the National Press Club Award, and his book And Hell Followed With Her: Crossing the Dark Side of the American Border won the 2014 International Latino Book Award for general nonfiction. Neiwert’s latest book, Of Orcas and Men: What Killer Whales Can Teach Us, plunges into every aspect of the lives of orca whales and their relationship with humans throughout history. Neiwert pairs education and research with beautiful descriptions and anecdotes; at the book’s end, you’ll feel like you were raised by orcas — or at least a whale expert.
