Anger can take us down a road of no return. How far will anger drive Ann? In 1848, Ann dresses in men's clothing and signs on to a whaling ship to hunt down and kill the man who "ruined" her. She soon learns that a whaling voyage often lasts three years and that the odds of finding the particular ship on which her nemesis sails is near zero. She has committed herself to perhaps the most vile and dangerous of any profession. Will she survive? If she is found out, what will happen to her? But what exotic places will she see? Will anger cloud her judgment when she finds herself attracted to one particular sailor who sees her only as a boy and fellow sailor? Based on the true story of Rebecca Ann Johnson, this is a tale of redemption from bitterness.The setting for First Fury not only tells the story of Rebecca Ann Johnson, but describes the nature of the mid-nineteenth century whaling industry. The money in oil pushed whalers into uncharted waters as they extended the boundaries of the known world. Death walked the decks of these ships as much as exotic lands attracted the men who served on them.
