Description - The Last Whale, by Chris Pash

A timely reminder of how far we've come since the days of routine slaughter, of how hard conservationists fought to bring it to an end, and how vigilant we must be in making sure that the dark days of whaling are behind us forever.' - Tim Winton '... an important contribution to Australian history and to the protection of whales. From a historical perspective, it chronicles the people and events which created Greenpeace in Australia and it also seeks to understand the minds and thinking of those who hunted whales in Australia ...' - Steve Shallhorn, CEO Greenpeace Australia Pacific Jean-Paul Fortom-Gouin, aka the Phantom, is man on an anti-whaling mission who wangles his way onto the International Whaling Commission with a snappy suit and ticket from the Panamanian Government. Ches Stubbs, Skipper of the whaling ship Cheynes III, is known for his long range skills with a harpoon. Just like Ahab, Ches loses a leg while whaling and, just like a pirate, sails with a pet cockatoo that happens to have a penchant for gnawing on naked toes. These are just two of the real-life characters captured with heart and humour by Chris Pash in his story about the end of whaling in Australia. The book shows a town reliant on whaling dollars pitted against a determined band of international protesters. Officially endorsed by Greenpeace International
