Color photos and surface profile drawings show Alaska marine mammals and compare similar species, and color range maps show distribution. Mammal characteristics and descriptions are presented in a format that allows fast, accurate identification at sea. The 80-page, award-winning, richly illustrated book is printed on durable water-resistant paper, and is wire-bound to give years of service outdoors and in the office, classroom, and home.

The 2018 printing of this award-winning book has new orca illustrations. Range and status information was updated in 2012.
