From Whale Hunting to Whale Watching


By Wulf H. Koehler

This book has been written to remind islanders and enlighten visitors of the Azores of the almost forgotten era of whaling on Sao Miguel. This photo documentary shows the almost unimaginable change from the cruel period of whale hunting to the equanimity of whale watching in a few short years. The chapters tell stories not only of the harsh times, the tough working conditions, the poverty of the working families and of their memories, but also of the fascinating, almost unbelievable moments that can be experienced out on the open Atlantic with whales and dolphins today. The book is written in three languages: English, German and Portuguese.
