This is a companion volume to the immense, The history of the Whalers on the South Coast of New Holland from 1800 – 1888, by Rod Dickson. Hesperian Press, 2007. The West Coast book lists the whalers alphabetically, with master, tonnage and rig, home port, date sailed and to which whaling ground. While not detailed to the extent of the South Coast volume, the gems of information on WA costal activities are of great interest.
