KIRKUS REVIEW

A book with much of the dramatic force and fascination found in Robertson's Of Whales and Men tells the story of whales and whaling both biologically and historically. The first half treats of the whales themselves and Blond's style is vivid and personal as he follows first a trio of blue whales and then a cachalot, through their life cycles. In the second half, fine use of on-the-scene dialogue is made to describe old and new whaling methods- in 19th century America and 20th century Norway.
