This is the epic history of the "iron men in wooden boats" who built an industrial empire through the pursuit of whales. Eric Jay Dolin chronicles the rise of the burgeoning whaling industry to its decline as the twentieth century dawned. Containing a wealth of naturalistic detail on whales, "Leviathan" is the most original and stirring history of American whaling in many decades.

"An exhaustive, richly detailed history of industrial American whaling... A real taste of the vile life aboard a whaleship and a cleareyed analysis of the cutthroat tactics of the whale-oil trade." ---The New York Times
