A hundred years ago "Moby Dick" was a name that struck terror into the hearts of whalers' wives and families for the great white whale was known as a man-killer and a shipwrecker.

When Moby Dick wrecked his boat and tore off his right leg in a terrible struggle Captain Ahab swore a vengeance. How he sailed the seas for years bent on this one purpose; how he made of his life one fierce search and how he kept his vow is told in this tale which is unique in all the annals of sea fighting for its dramatic power.

Of all the stories and romances of the sea, this story of Ahab, the mad master of a hell ship, his hate, his furious passion and his revenge is the most famous and enduring.
