Item description for A Year With A Whaler by Walter Noble Burns...
In its heyday there were thousands of whaling ships in every major sea and the lure of freedom, money and adventure was a siren call to many young men including the author who responded to a Help Wanted ad for, as he says, .the adventure of the thing. Anecdotes, character sketches and settings provide lively counterpoint to the harsh and dangerous conditions Burns endured. The author's sharp eye makes this an unforgettable adventure story.
