Abstract:  SEA OF SLAUGHTER documents the white European's onslaught on the North American continent, and its devastating results for other life. Mowat writes of the slaughter of buffalo and walrus, wolves and whales, of the virtual destruction of the salmon fishery on the east coast.

The book expresses anger at the settlers who came to this continent and proceeded to lay it waste, but makes allowances for their relative ignorance of the consequences. "We who are alive today", says Mowat,"can claim no such exculpation for our biocidal actions and their dire consequences. Modern man has increasing opportunity to be aware of the complexity and interrelationship of the living world. If ignorance is to serve now as an exucse it can only be wilful, murderous ignorance.
