Maria travels to New Bedford Whaling Museum. We are excited that our book, Maria and the Lost Calf, Maria e a Bezerrinha Perdida, by Kate Morejohn and illustrated by Dwight Morejohn, is being sold at the New Bedford Whaling Museum, in New Bedford, Massachusetts. http://www.whalingmuseum.org/
To get an idea of the importance of Portuguese and Azorean whalers, Don Warrin’s So Ends this Day is one of the best written sources for Portuguese-American whaling to date.
Nathaniel Philbrick, author of In the Heart of the Sea: the Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex, commenting on Warrin’s book: “For far too long the Portuguese contribution to American whaling has been relegated to the sidelines of history this meticulously researched and well-written study puts the emphasis where rightly belongs.” Many thanks to the Museum for featuring our book!
