Description

From the review by Capt. Bill Pinkney, in WoodenBoat #277:

 

"But this is not a glossy sea story. It is the down-and  dirty

of an industry that thrived from 1700 until the

early 20th century, a chronicle of the individuals and

families who gained a level of success unknown, anywhere

else, in the lives of people of color in their time.

The book is also an in-depth study of the whaling industry,

race, maritime lore, family structure, religion, nepotism,

genealogical integration, and education. It is an

excellent primer of the whaling industry, and a salute to

the men of color who helped to sustain it for 150 years."
