Beautiful and sometimes haunting writing about the author's experiences and musings as a whale scientist in the Prince William Sound. I love her writing-- for the poetry of her prose and how well it evokes the people and landscape of the Sound. Made me miss Alaska. She covers a range of experiences and emotions too, all interesting to inhabit. A big thank you to Marty Williams for suggesting this book. It was hard to find, but very worth the effort.

Beautifully written, deeply moving, and profoundly honest stories about the places Eva loved with all her heart. Alaska lost a great voice when she passed away way much too early.

Writer and poet Eva Saulitis elegantly probes the relationships between art and science in her first book of essays, LEAVING RESURRECTION: CHRONICLES OF A WHALE SCIENTIST, published by Fairbanks-based Red Hen Press. Saulitis, having earned graduate degrees in both biology and writing, is no stranger to the act of asking questions—as a scientist, she poses them, gathers data in order to discern facts, then articulates and tests hypotheses. As a writer, she's able to explore her visceral subject [...]

This was an outstanding book, eloquently written, about a woman from "The Outside" finding herself in The Last Frontier. Perhaps only fellow transplants into Alaska will have even an inkling of how the author feels, and certainly she was a lot more Alaskan than I ever was, but everything resonated with me: the transplantation from the familiar, the awe and appreciation of nature's creatures, the soul-searching that comes from new environs and unsettling situations. But it was also fascinating to [...]

Eva's poems have surfaced from time to time in my reading for many years. When I work as a naturalist in Southeast Alaska, I use her book on killer whales as a resource. Now we get a blending of both worlds -- the poet-biologist exploring her explorations of self and of the natural world. This is an exciting first book. It's billed as a memoir -- but that's not quite the right categorization. This is more an artistic, intellectual, philosophical exploration.

a unique search for truth mixing scientific fact, with lore and tradition. the author studies migratory whales in alaska and is also a poet. she gives just as much weight to data as she does to folktales and oral history. she writes about the changes that alaska is facing and how the valdez oil spill is still hurting the land.

I didn't particularly enjoy this and didn't even make it halfway through the book before I felt like I had so many better things to read. The writing itself is good and there's no doubt about the author's talent. But the content didn't do it for me. I felt like I was reading a personal diary; I didn't belong there. And so I left.

The author's heart and spirit run deep within her words and story. She brings the reader into Prince William Sound, the lives of the whales, and her personal journey. A marvelous book that continues way beyond its pages.

Saulitis charts the outer waters of Prince William Sound and the inner waters of the psyche. A book filled with beautiful images and beautiful language. I've recommended this book to many people who are visiting the Sound. Don't miss it.

It took some time to settle into Eva's voice--i had to be more patient than I was ready to be at first. But when i was open to it, this became one of the most beautiful intersections of science, life, and poetry that i've read in a long, long time.
