Australia's first industry was also its most hazardous way of earning a living. From lonely bays to beaches, flimsy boats sped out to challenege the world's largest mammal, approaching within a few feet so that the headsman could plunge a harpoon into its lungs. What followed was like an eruption of nature, but usually the battle was won by the whalers. These hardy men melted the blubber into oul which went to light the homes of England, and returned to the fray as soon as another whale was spotted on the horizon. They pursued their dangerous trade with such zest that the whales were driven away from the coastline, and larger ships were needed to follow them into deeper waters. Fleets of whalers came back to Sydney and Hobart with their sails blackened by smoke from the try-pots, their deaks and bulkheads smeared and stinking with blubber, and their holds full of valuable cargo. The commercial development of petroleum put a sudden end to deep-sea whaling, but after many years it was recommenced - this time with the help of the steam engine and the harpoon-gun. Australia was soon left behind in the massive assult on whales of the southern hemisphere launched by maritime nations of the world. Now, the whales could be followed into their Antarctic breeding grounds, killed with comparative safety, and hauled aboard floating factories. While Australian politicians and businessmen wrangled, the whales were disappearing. Norwegian whalemen were enlisted to revitalise Australia whaling, but it reverted to a shore-based industry while the British, Japanese, Dutch and other nations hunted down the whales amongst the ice. Despite the efforts of international commissions and Australian conservationists, the whale population of the southern oceans is now only a pathetic fraction of its once-teeming immensity, and there seems no enf to the slaughter. Max Colwell tells the whole story in a way which makes fascinating reading, as well as giving insight into what was once a vital part of Australian life. (Inside cover)
