211 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs, drawings, maps. "Over 30,000 whales were killed in the Pacific Northwest between 1905 and 1972, and the business of capturing and processing them created its own mythology. Here are tales of the monsters that almost got away, of whales that rammed the ships trying to capture them, and of the whalers themselves, who lived always on the edge of danger, risking life and limb in pursuit of the biggest animals in the world. Many of the old whalers were avid collectors of maritime lore, and their stories of whales and of the life in the sea - the sperm whale's ambergris, freaks of enormous size or those with legs, and giant octopus and sea monsters - create a vivid background to William Hagelund's very personal history of whaling on the west coast." Light wrinkling at bottom of spine, small ink mark at top edge of rear board. Dust jacket has very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, minor rubbing on rear panel.
