From The Island at the Top of the World
[They have discovered a frozen bay filled with the carcasses of many dead whales
] Where the whales go to die. All those great creatures from every sea, lying there, from the beginning of time.
Sir Anthony Ross
Just look at all that whalebone! Worth millions of pounds! And heavens knows what the ambergris would fetch.
All that doesn't matter now, does it, father?
