Marcus B. Simpson Jr. and Sallie W. Simpson

Originally published as an award-winning article in the North Carolina Historical Review, this fascinating study traces the history of whaling in the state from the seventeenth century until World War I. Includes a number of colorful accounts of local whaling around Shackleford Banks in the latter half of the nineteenth century and a vivid description of the catch of “Mayflower,” North Carolina’s best-known whale.
