A few miles from San Francisco lives a population of the ocean's largest and most famous predators. Each fall the great white sharks return to California's Farallon Islands to dine on their favorite meal: seals. Massive, fast, and perfectly adapted to hunting after 11 million years of evolution, the great whites are among the planet's most fearsome and least understood animals. In the fall of 2012, Katherine Roy visited the Farallons with the scientists who study the islands' sharks. NEIGHBORHOOD SHARKS is an intimate portrait of the life cycle, biology, and habitat of the great white shark, based on the latest research and an up-close visit with these amazing animals.
