LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

Pagent of Australia Series. Rigby, Adelaide. 1980. The early battled turbulent seas, shipwrecks, hunger, and disease in their ruthless search for whales. They were truly the unsung heroes of Australian history. The whalers were always at the mercy of the whale's fury-boats were capsized and men drowned. Killer whales, darting through the water at thirty knots, frequently towed away boats full of men, never to be heard of again. Whaling became a major industry in Australia and Tasmania. Bay whaling stations were set up on many parts of the southern Australian coast and islands and many ships came from France and America. On board the Nielson Alonso, deep in the Antarctic, sometimes as many as twenty-nine whales were taken in one day. The decks were ankle deep in blood and at the end of one trip there were fifty whales moored alongside the boat. In this carefully documented book, Margaret and Colin Kerr have recreated the triumphs and disasters of the early whalemen and have brought alive an era that has now disappeared forever. Illustrated dust jacket over blue cloth covered end boards. Near fine condition. 64pp. 240 x 180 mm
