WHALE ADVENTURE by Willard Price


Email this review


Hal and Roger Hunt, those two intrepid brothers whose adventures in the Amazon, South Seas, etc. have previously been recorded, now embark on a Pacific whaling voyage. At the mercy of a brutal captain, a turbulent sea, and a host of ferocious sperm whales, the two teen-agers nevertheless survive the ordeal, acquitting themselves with their characteristic integrity. High adventure, less subtle than it is compelling, forms a vivid background for the wealth of data on the whale fishing industry. A cut above the typical boys' serial, Whale Adventure is prodigal in the information it imparts. More adventures to follow.
