In the Arctic, the authors music lures gray whales trapped under the ice to safety. Near British Columbia we swim with an Orca mother whose own captive daughter -- seven times pregnant and without a living offspring -- is the property of a San Diego oceanarium.No one holds a single key to the charged border, but Jim Nollman provides an entrance for all of us. How we make our way is up to us.
