      This book is amazing. Such a glimpse into a different world! I am writing a manuscript of poems about whaling and this was a great resource. The only thing I didn't like was the heavy-handed Christianity, but that was also just a reflection of the time. It was a thin book, a quick read, and an engaging story. Definitely recommend it for anyone interested in American history, women's history, or the whaling industry.

      This was actually somewhat entertaining. There wasn't as much about actual whaling as I had hoped, but it seemed a fairly accurate account of what life would have been like then.
