Whipple has collected the whaling lore of this whole extraordinary era - stories of ships sunk by rogue whales, tales of the real-life prototype of Moby Dick, and yarns of cannibalism, mutiny, and Polynesian "marriage." Such great captains as Pollard, Chase, Hussey, and Tilton sail through incredible exploits in the pages of this book. And Mr. Whipple pieces together the facts in Herman Melville's novels from Melville's own experiences on the high seas and the stories he had heard." - from the dj.
