Town That Had Enough: A History of Fields Landing & Its Whaling Station

Town That Had Enough: A History of Fields Landing & Its Whaling Station

from 13.50

By Noel E. Harris & Lesa Coleman. This book tells the story of Harris's life in Fields Landing, as well as the history of the last whaling station in the continental USA, and the love-hate relationship between the two. The stench eventually became too much for the people of Fields Landing, and since whaling was no longer the money-maker it used to be, the station was closed down. Harris’s memories combined with Coleman’s research provide a look at a way of life that no longer exists in our country. Member Price: $13.50
