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. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sally Martin. Audio sample: Digital audiobook in aax.
