About this book

Language: Trilingual in English, German, and Portuguese

From Whale Hunting to Whale Watching / Von der Waljagd zur Walbeobachtung / Da Caça à Observação de Baleias has been written to remind islanders and enlighten visitors of the Azores of the almost forgotten era of whaling on São Miguel. This photo documentary shows the almost unimaginable change from the cruel period of whale hunting to the equanimity of whale watching in a few short years. The chapters tell stories not only of the harsh times, the tough working conditions, the poverty of the working families and of their memories, but also of the fascinating, almost unbelievable moments that can be experienced out on the open Atlantic with whales and dolphins today.
