Item Detail

  1. Overview
  • Overview

    White as the Waves is a modern retelling of Herman Melville's novel Moby Dick, but with a twist: in this version, aimed at young adult readers, the story is told using the viewpoint of the whale rather than that of Captain Ahab. The book follows key events in the white whale's life, from his birth off the Galapagos Islands to the loss of his mate in an attack by whalers, to his own desperate assaults on the whaling vessels that are driving his species to extinction. Like Melville's human protagonist, White as the Waves must struggle continually to find meaning in a universe which appears to him to have turned hostile and chaotic.
