An Unusual Whaling Voyage Journal


Log books and journals from whaling voyages are often filled with weather and sea observations and can make for dry reading. Around the World in Search of Whales, A Journal of the Lucy Ann Voyage 1841-1844 by John F. Martin is an exception. This droll narrative with vivid watercolors are a literary and visual feast. Joining us on The Point to discuss the Journal of the Lucy Ann Voyage is Michael Dyer, Senior Maritime Historian at the New Bedford Whaling Museum. Mindy Todd hosts.
