Whales, Ice, and Men: The History of Whaling in the Western Arctic
University of Washington Press, 1986 - Business & Economics - 400 pages
In the pages that follow, the story of commercial whaling in the western Arctic is told by a scholar intimately acquainted with the terrain--not only as it can be found in the historical records or at archaeological sites, but from lone experience on the shores and waters where the great adventure was played out. His book is written with such mastery and vigor that we confidently greet it as the finest history yet written on any aspect of American whaling.
