Petticoat Whalers. Joan Druett. Paintings by Ron Druett. 1991 1st edition. Collins, Auckland

Books about early New Zealand history mostly tell of men. Women are usually unseen and unrecorded in the background

This book is unusual in that it documents the lives of women - very different women - the wives of the whalemen who sailed around the Pacific and Antarctic Oceans on whaling boats with their husbands

List of surviving logs, journals, letters and diaries kept by women, with name of author (and often husband), ship, dates, where located now

Many portraits of both the women and their husbands.
Old photos showing the whaling processes

213pp; b/w photos and repros of engravings; coloured repros of paintings; index; bibliography; illustrated epps; appendix; hard covers, silver lettering; very good condition
Dust jacket; very good condition; v/tiny tear top front corner
