Everett S. Allen, through diaries, letters, and newspaper
accounts of the period, follows the Quakers from Plymouth Colony to New
Bedford, Massachusetts, where these "children of the light" lived and
founded an enormously lucrative whaling industry and elevated it to an
almost holy activity ordained by God for the enrichment of the "chosen."
Allen recounts the full story of a famous 1871 Arctic disaster, in
which thirty-two vessels in the New Bedford whaling fleet, carrying 1200
officers and crew, found themselves trapped in gale-driven pack ice.
The shipwrecked victims were miraculously rescued without a single loss
of human life. The damage to the fleet, however, was something from
which New Bedford never fully recovered.
