Ahab's Trade tracks the rise and fall of this first global industry and tells the story of the men who made it. The Nantucketers, the first and the best, taught the world how whaling should be done.
Although they whaled in American, British, French, Australian and New Zealand ships, their calling made them citizens of a closed and isolated world unlike that of other seamen.
