    PDF Shirley Barrett ï Rush Oh MOBI Ç ï rush epub, Rush Oh eBookThis novel is very loosely based on the life of George 'Fearless' Davidson Master Whaler of Eden He was a real character born in 1936 and the third generation to take up whaling He was married and not a widow as in this book and had eight children none of whom feature as his offspring in the storyThe novel tells the story of the whaling season of 1908 following on from several bad years where George is struggling to keep his family and whalers fed One of George's fictional daughters Mary is the narrator and we see the struggles both in the bay and at home in her eyes I very much enjoyed the historical aspects of this novel with the history of whaling showing both the heroic feats of the whalers but also the horrors of the capture and death of the whales The involvement of the killer whales of Eden in helping the whalers by herding their larger cousins was also a fascinating story and one I've not heard before The author has sprinkled her narrative w

    PDF Shirley Barrett ï Rush Oh MOBI Ç ï rush epub, Rush Oh eBook25★I was expecting to like this a bit than I did It started off really well the story was great the writing was fine but ultimately I think it was the tone that dragged it down for me This is a fictional memoir of Mary Davidson fictional daughter of real life character George 'Fearless' Davidson a whaler from the Eden region of NSW at the turn of the 20th century Mary gives us an account of the 1908 whaling season although the narrative wanders off to other periods as the story reuires Her descriptions of various whale chases and their aftermath are fabulous and seemed to be really detailed and authentic to me
