I absolutely loved this magnificent book
A monumental achievement
[An] immersive, densely reported and altogether remarkable first book ... The Last Whalers has the texture and colouring of a first-rate novel
Should serve as a tribute to this tribe, and all the others, foundering in or riding out the 'typhoon of life'
Remarkable... a rich, novelistic account based on diligent reporting ... An empathetic, even intimate account, but not a dewy-eyed one ... Wonderful
