Literary Nonfiction. Portuguese-American Studies. Immigration History. Jerry Williams's history of Azorean immigration to the United States offers us valuable insight into the experience and culture of Portuguese immigrants and their descendents. This account fills a major gap in American immigration history and gives us a comprehensive overview of how Portuguese-Americans--now numbering about a million people--have come to constitute a vibrant and highly visible presence within southeastern New England, the areas around San Francisco and San Diego, Hawaii, and the New Jersey/New York metropolitan area. Even though Azorean immigrants all came from similar cultural and social backgrounds, Williams shows how regionally specific opportunity structures and social hierarchies have contributed to significant differences within the Portuguese-American experience.

The Azores are an island nation where historically whaling was an essential way of life. To hunt the whale, young men and old would risk their lives in open boats from shore, and this activity represents the heart of Azorean history and tradition. This volume contains essays on the rich history of whaling and its associated folkways in the Azores and on the techniques of building the boat and the author's relationship with his Azorean mentor. Abundantly illustrated with line drawings, historical photographs, and over fifty watercolours documenting both the process and setting.
