Sea of Slaughter by Farley Mowat
Mowat recounts the grim fate of the wildlife of the North Atlantic seaboard after the arrival of European man. This "howl of outrage" (Kirkus) chronicles how whales, once one of the most complex and stable life forms on Earth, became virtually eradicated; how great auks, numbering the hundreds of millions, were driven extinct; how creatures as diverse as walruses and seals, cod and cormorants, nearly suffered the same fate.
