Author: Doug Bock Clark
Published by Libros del asteroide
Softcover. 440 pages. 21,5 x 14 cm
American journalist Doug Bock Clark spent three years in a remote Indonesian enclave with the indigenous Lamaleran tribe, the only tribe that continues to fish for sperm whales, the world's largest toothed animal, using only traditional methods, the same methods that Captain Ahab would have used against Moby Dick in the 19th century: rowing boats and harpooning them by hand.The result of their experience is this captivating portrait of a group that lives in balance with nature, perpetuating a practice with a strong ritual and epic component, and who watch helplessly as their customs and livelihoods gradually disappear. Climate change, globalisation and new technologies are destroying a community in which solidarity, respect for nature and the elders were exponents of a culture that reflected the best of human beings.
