Amazon review of Elephant Island

Every now and then a review comes up that is extremely satisfying -- because someone out there understood what the writer was trying to say.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great true story of adventure and politics March 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Amazon Verified Purchase
I loved this book. The author found a true story of nineteenth century whaling /sealing
 and filled it out with admirable descriptions of the people involved; 
a villain, some heroes, some victims and others peripherally involved. 

The historical and geographical contexts let the reader comprehend
 just why the characters did what they did. 

If you like nautical adventure stories, or courtroom dramas, or detailed local history, 
then you will be enthralled by this well-written tale.
