Stock Description

Like most of us, William Hagelund sees whales through compassion-ate eyes now, and marvels at the boom times of BC's whaling industry when he and a host of legendary old harpooners hunted down the great sperm and humpback herds off Vancouver Island without a trace of remorse. But those barnacled old mariners, whether they be seen as heroes or villains, were fascinated students of their prey and their story brings one close to the world of the great cetaceans. Whalers No More, the history of the west coast whaling industry, is an epic chapter in the history of whales and men, and Hagelund relates it in a warm and personal manner. The colourful and fascinating text is illustrated with photos and maps.
