|About the Book|
While working in the South Pacific in 1990 this story came to me from two sources: the first was the reverence that the Hawaiian people hold for the sea creatures, especially whales, and the second was a Portuguese fellow named Ferdinand that enjoyed my poetry. The two came together in a dream state early one morning, and Moby Dick, the most famous of all whales in literature took his rightful place as the other main character. But in this story, Moby dick is A gentle creature, friend of man, but shy of those who live on land. Both Moby Dick and Ferdinand each suffer tragedies, Moby Dick at the hand of Capn Ahab, and Ferdinand to a shipwreck during a storm. But both emerge victorious in the most wonderful way.
