Moby Dick

Moby Dick

    An American Classic, told by a masterful story-teller from the early 19th Century.  It is a story of the adventures of a wandering sailor named Ishmael, his Indian friend Queequeg and their fateful voyage on the whaler Pequod out of New Bedford, Massachusetts. 

    The Pequod was captained by Ahab, a demented soul...torn by his desire to wreak vengeance upon a large white sperm whale that, on a previous voyage, had destroyed his boat and bitten off his leg. To Ahab, this voyage was not to harvest the oil of the great beasts of the ocean and make a profit for the ship owners that made him Captain; rather it was a quest for vengeance on his nemesis, Moby Dick, the great White Whale. 

    The reader will find this a very adventurous story as well as an informative one. One can get an excellent glimpse of life in early America and the New England whaling traditions.
