Review:

"A powerful novel." -- People

"A scintillating tale that is also surprisingly believable. The Jonah Man is a memorable story indeed, a taut novel of man and the sea." -- The Plain Dealer

"The Jonah Man in retelling a great sea chronicle, breathes life into another age, and makes us aware of how much it is our own." -- Newsday

"The sight, the sound, the events, the tangle of kinships of a community that depended on the harsh harvest of whaling are brought to urgent life." -- Mary Lee Settle, author of Charley Bland
