  • Hello I'm Mariam. Today's story is about the experiences of a man who goes on an epic adventure.

  • He sails on a ship whose captain is determined to seek revenge on a whale called Moby Dick.

  • The man is called Ishmael. He's heading to Nantucket to see if he can find work on a

  • whaling ship. On the way he meets Queequeg, a rough and dangerous-looking man who works

  • as a harpooner. They become friends and together they find work on a whaling ship called The Pequod.

  • It sets sail, but it's not until a few days into the journey that they first see the ship's

  • captain, Ahab. He is a bitter and twisted old man with a long white scar down his face.

  • He also has a false leg made from a whale's jaw. You see, his real leg had been bitten

  • off by a whale on a previous voyage. He tells the crew "this whale was the famous Moby Dick"

  • and he makes them all promise to help him hunt the whale down and kill him.

  • It's a long and hard voyage - they sail across the Atlantic and the Indian Ocean - they encounter

  • a huge typhoon and their navigational instruments break. Ishmael could not see how they would

  • ever find Moby Dick in such a massive ocean. Then Queequeg the harpooner gets a bad fever

  • and a coffin is made for him in anticipation of his death. But, he recovers and the ship

  • sails on into the Pacific Ocean. Although they catch and kill other whales on the way,

  • there is no sign of Moby. Where can he be?

  • You'll have to wait and see. Join me in part two to see if Captain Ahab finally gets his

  • revenge on Moby Dick. Bye for now.
