The Winter Whale
Format: Kindle Edition|Change

on 30 March 2013
Having seen the whale skeleton in question in the Dundee Museum, I did not realise at the time anything about the events,which brought it there.
The amusing but sad events are ably recalled,
Pleased to note how much the general attitude toward these magnificent creatures has changed since the times of the book's
Well worth a read.

I was so taken with this 20th Century story that I sent off for Roger Payne's 'Among Whales' and I am very glad I did.

I found this book to be boring. I generally enjoy reading books about the whaling industry of yore but not this one

Very interesting book, but very sad. Not for those of a sensitive nature. Gives a good insight to how or ancestors treated animals.

A wonderful piece of History and a great insight to the interaction between people and whales over the centuries. Well worth a read.
