Description

Sometimes we kill the whale. Sometimes the whaling kills us.When Ishmael joins the crew of the Pequod he is told of the danger he faces, but he still longs for the adventure that whale-hunting brings. As the ship travels the globe looking for its prey, Ishmael realises that there is more to their mission than oil, blubber and riches. Captain Ahab is a man consumed by obsession, but will he ever find the elusive Moby Dick? This tale beautifully depicts the
power and mystery of the magnificent whale, and the trials of those who seek to harm him.
