Description


'Breach your last to the sun, Moby Dick ' cried Ahab. 'Thy hour and thy harpoon are at hand ' Why does Captain Ahab look like a man who's being crucified? How did he come by that hideous scar and the false leg made of a whale's bone? And why is he obsessed by Moby Dick, the great white whale? Ishmael, the new recruit, has other strange shipmates. There's Queequeg for instance, covered in weird tattoos and selling shrunken human heads. And what of the shadowy figures creeping on board the whaling ship Pequod? Ahab leads them all in reckless pursuit of Moby Dick. Will he succeed in killing the whale, or will Moby Dick lure Ahab and his crew to destruction?
