Review – Hunter turned protector

(First Posted Monday, September 29, 2008)

The Adelaide Review says The Last Whale by Chris Pash is the story of crazy young activists in 1977 risking their lives in rubber dinghies, duelling with steel whaling ships and placing themselves between whales and explosive harpoons.

The article by Ian Williams says: “Pash is non-judgemental in his portrayal of the key characters involved in the emotionally charged campaign, delivering a narrative style that gives equal weight to both whalers and protesters. He spent months tracking down the former adversaries to piece together the action and provide an insight into their experiences and motivations.”
