White As the Waves

A novel by

A modern retelling of Herman Melville's 'Moby Dick', but with a twist: in this version the story is told using the viewpoint of the whale, rather than that of Captain Ahab. The book follows key events in the whale's life, from his birth off the Galapagos Islands to the loss of his mate in an attack by whalers, to his own desperate assaults on the whaling vessels that are driving his species to extinction.
