A Brief History On October 18, 1851, the Herman Melville classic, Moby Dick, was first published under its original or alternate title, The Whale.  Not surprisingly, a particular enormous Sperm Whale, that happens to be white in color, is the star of the story, never mind the human drama that interferes with the exciting whale parts!  People have often written books and stories about animals, whether those critters are loved pets, feared predators of humans, or just focusing on the animal as an individual persona.  Some of the stories are scary, some sad, some fictional and some really happened.  These…
