Product Overview

While Nantucket has long enjoyed an illustrious position in America''s whaling history, Cape Cod''s contribution to the industry is relatively unknown, yet it was a Cape Codder who taught the Nantucketers how to hunt whales. In Cape Cod Shore Whaling, authors Duncan Oliver and John Braginton-Smith uncover Cape Cod''s integral role in shaping whalefishery, which began along the Cape''s sandy shores and evolved into the far-flung whaling expeditions that drove Nantucket''s economy into the nineteenth century. Drawing on rare documents never before published, whaling journals and diaries, Oliver and Braginton-Smith recreate a bygone age when men fought one another for rights to the sea.
