From the cover blurb: "Written with the spice and gusto of a salty sea chanty, Mr. Whipple's book is packed with drama from stem to stern." Whipple, a former Time-Life editor, has devoted himself to whaling research since the 1940s. His chapters include material on Captains Pollard, Chase, Hussey and Tilton. Also the historical basis for the Moby Dick legend.
