Description - The Whale Warriors by Peter Heller

On board a pirate ship in the battle to save the world's largest mammals

Any day saving a whale is a good day to die... December 2005: journalist Peter Heller arrives in Melbourne to join the Farley Mowat, a pirate ship hellbent on saving whales from hunters in Antarctica. On board Heller finds an uncompromising crew of eco-crusaders who fly the Jolly Roger, operate a steel blade they call the 'can opener' to ram whaling fleets, and dismiss Greenpeace as 'Avon ladies'. their leader, the irascible Paul Watson, patrols the seas, in search of his nemesis, the Nisshin Maru. Over the next two months this motley crew will plough through gale-force winds, monster swells and a monotonously vegan diet, as they chase the Japanese ship, and find themselves at the centre of an international whaling war, where the stakes are dangerously high and there is no turning back. Fast-paced, expertly written and often hilariously funny, the Whale Warriors is a gripping adventure story set on the high seas.
