KIRKUS REVIEW

In contrast to Robertson's Of Whales and Men here is a panoramic view of 19th century whaling, the men, the adventures and the far flung background of the profession. A regular compendium this with accounts of famous rogue whales, ships and life of them, the discovery of Antarctica and so on, and it makes another th'ar she blows- for an ever devoted following.
