Here is new light on those much-mooted points, the invention of the schooner and the breathing of the whales; and much whalemen's lore concerning methods of attack and the behavior of the quarry. Here are all the details of whaleship construction, rigging and navigation, gear and craft, and side-lights on the unique personalities of the whalemen from New Bedford, Nantucket, and Long Island ports. Here, in short, is the most detailed and superbly illustrated book on American whaling which has been ever been written."
