I hope that this collection of texts and annotations will enable the reader to gain a closer understanding and appreciation of what may be, to some, one of the world's lesser known geographic locales, but which is one of the world's most unique and dynamic regions. Acknowledgments This volume was made possible by the assistance and support of numerous individuals and institutional organizations.

Azoreans have sailed the waters of the globe as crewmen and captains on whaling ships (even numbering among the crew on Melville's and Ahab's mythical Pequod) and have, until the mid- to late 20th century, practised the art of open-boat whaling in which whales spotted from shore were chased by small crews of rowers who risked their lives in their hunt for the leviathan and their livelihoods. Indeed, it was whale hunting that caused the first great wave of Azorean migration from the archipelago to North America, as many whalemen abandoned arduous lives on board ship in favour of rural farming lives in New England and California, lives which better suited the predominantly dairy farmers of the Azores.
