Final Voyage: A Story of Arctic Disaster and One Fateful Whaling Season

"Peter Nichols has crafted a terrifyingly suitable ancient narrative. .. a very good learn. "
-Nathaniel Philbrick, writer of within the center of the ocean

In the summer time of 1871, thirty-two whaling ships, sporting 12-year-old William Fish Williams, son of a whaling captain, and 1,218 different males, ladies, and youngsters, have been destroyed in an Arctic ice typhoon. In a rescue operation of unheard of bold and heroism, no longer a unmarried existence was once misplaced, however the effect on America's first oil used to be fateful and catastrophic.

The harvesting of whale oil, which grew from occasional beachcombing right into a multi-million buck undefined, made New Bedford, Massachusetts, the wealthiest city on the earth. Quaker brothers George and Matthew Howland, the town's top whaling retailers, believed they have been toiling in a pact with God. As whale oil lubricated the economic revolution and grew to become New Bedford into the Saudi Arabia of its day, this trust simply grew superior. yet as their whaleships driven ever farther into uncharted seas in putsuit of a fast-diminishing source, this oil company was once overtaken via new paradigms. while the hunt for more affordable power resources produced a brand new and it sounds as if inexhaustible resource--petroleum oil--the Howlands and so on didn't see the switch coming, or the devastating impression it'll have on an that has flourished for 2 centuries. nearly in a single day, it appeared, the realm replaced. enterprise and fiscal associations collapsed. The Howland brothers observed their fortune vanish and ended their lives as paupers.

For Willie Fish Williams, and the whalers and their households within the Arctic who watched as their floating group used to be overwhelmed through the ice ultimate round them, that modify got here extra swiftly.

Drawing on formerly unpublished fabric, ultimate Voyage splices jointly compelling narratives: the Howland brothers' unheard of upward thrust and unexpected fall with the fortunes of America's first oil industry--which eerily prefigures today's glossy financial collapse-- and a 12-year-old boy's shiny statement of a maritime catastrophe set opposed to the world's most harsh seascape.
