Description

The Azores are an island nation where historically whaling was an essential way of life. To hunt the whale, young men and old would risk their lives in open boats from shore, and this activity represents the heart of Azorean history and tradition. This volume contains essays on the rich history of whaling and its associated folkways in the Azores and on the techniques of building the boat and the author's relationship with his Azorean mentor. Abundantly illustrated with line drawings, historical photographs, and over fifty watercolours documenting both the process and setting.
