"[M]ost monstrous and most mountainous! That Himmalehan, salt-sea Mastodon, clothed with such portentousness of unconscious power, that his very panics are more to be dreaded than his most fearless and malicious assaults!"
—from chapter 14 of Moby-Dick by Herman Melville, "Nantucket"


We are ever closer to the sea, ever closer to the business of whaling.
