North to Matsumae by Noreen Jones

Book Description

Jones retraces the perilous voyages of two nineteenth-century Australian whaling ships, the Lady Rowena and the Eamont, as they endured shipwreck, mutiny, massacre and imprisonment while harvesting whales off the Japanese coast. Draws on the journal of the Lady Rowena's ship master and is supplemented by Japanese historical accounts. Charts a hitherto unexplored chapter in Australian-Japanese relations and provides an historical perspective on Japan's highly controversial whaling industry.
