Abstract:

It's the end of the seventies and one young reporter is bearing witness to the final days of Australia's whaling industry. Thirty years after the last whale was captured and slaughtered in Australia, Chris Pash, tells the very human story of the characters and events that brought whaling to an end. This fair and balanced account portrays the raw adventure of going to sea, the perils of being a whaler and the 'crazy, but somehow magical' commitment that leads activists to throw themselves into the path of an explosive harpoon. Accompanied by a wonderful photographic record of the time, this is the action-packed history of a town reliant on whaling dollars pitted against a determined band of protesters.
