"Sweeping throughthe pages of this exciting book like a thirty-mile gale, the exploits of Stormalong Alfred Bulltop travel at a terrific pace. Ever since the great days of the Yankee clippers American seamen have told tales of Alfred Bulltop Stormalong, the legendary sailor who stood four fathoms tall in his stocking feet. Since that time, too,tales have been told of Mocha Dick, the great white whale which roamed the waters of the Pacific. But here for the first time is the story of what ha ppened when they met, and how Old Stormalong left Captain Joshua Skinner's good ship Dolphin because if he couldn't get the kinks out of his muscles he couldn't capture Mocha Dick, and if he couldn't capture Mocha Dick he wasno whaler, and if he was no whaler he was no sailor, and if he was no sail or his place was on land. In the woods Old Stormalong did deeds that rival Paul Bunyan's, and in the West he was almost as great a cowboy as Pecos Bill. How he returned to see and again took up his feud with the great white whale makes a stirring climax to this salty, rollicking story, told in the grand tradition of the American tall tale." - from the dust jacket.
