About this title


The Mattapoisett and Marion shipyards turned out some of the most beautiful, well-built vessels to be employed in the maritime trades of Southeastern Massachusetts. Even the stout whalers Niger, Platina, and Wanderer are known to historians for their pleasing lines and successful careers. Now Ned Wood's facsinating reference work can take its place in the library of the local or whaling historian. Beautifully laid out, the book contains a wealth of data on each vessel built in the area, as well as the whaling voyages begun from each of the towns. In addition to being an important reference work, The Ports of Old Rochester is a good read to boot, as it is also a compilation of contemporary articles relating to the vessels and ports in question. These articles, most unseen for a century by anyone but an occasional researcher, are a fascinating window on an era when the yankee whaling trade was current news.
