KIRKUS REVIEW

Perhaps no experience in which man hunts animal is more packed with dramatic impact than that undergone in whaling. In this book the author describes the various types of whales, their appearance and habits, and describes how men from various parts of the world and at various times have hunted them. The tools and ships used are also described and illustrated in black and white line cuts. Recommended to boys with an interest in the adventurous aspects of commerce, and to those who like their accounts of big game hunting in a nautical context.
