First of all this book had great wood cut images on each page! The book describes the use of blubber to make oil and soap. It shows how Indians taught the Pilgrims how to hunt whales and the use of heat to release oil from blubber. It also give whaling term in the end of the book which is good for kids and everyone for that matter to read about.
