Hens, Horses and History!

Did you know that in a single day, the one million horses serving in the Civil War would have peed enough urine to fill more than 12 standard swimming pools?

Brain Pickings’ Maria Popova brings another awesome-looking picture book to our attention. She writes:

In May of 1839, Herman Melville found himself riveted by an article in the New York monthly magazine The Knickerbocker about a “renowned monster, who had come off victorious in a hundred fights with his pursuers” — a formidable albino whale named Mocha Dick, who had been terrorizing whaling ships with unprecedented ferocity for nearly half a century. Twelve years later, the beast was immortalized in Melville’s Moby-Dick.

More than 150 years after that, Brian Heinz and Randall Enos tell the story of the whale that inspired Melville’s classic. Their upcoming book is called Mocha Dick: The Legend and the Fury and its got some beautiful linocut collage illustrations.

[In writing] there are no guarantees of success, much less of quality. If you don’t dare to be a mediocre writer, you’ll never be a writer at all.
