About this product
- DescriptionMocha Dick is the name of the actual Sperm Whale who terrorized whale hunters in the early 19th Century. He was portrayed as an antagonist to Captain Ahab in Moby Dick - but was the whale the hero in reality? Accompanied by a republication of the original accounts of Jeremiah Reyld's Mocha Dick and contextual Editorial references on the past and present nature of whaling and Isla Mocha, Gary Green explores how much role perspective plays in the telling of a story - and the true heroism of this remarkable animal.
