In the Heart of the Sea
The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex
From Library Staff
The brilliantly written true story behind Melville's Moby Dick. That's right, it really happened. And this is better than Moby Dick. I read this at the coast a couple years ago and it blew my mind.
Recounts the story of the 1820 wreck of the whaleship Essex, which inspired Melville's classic "Moby-Dick," and describes its doomed crew's ninety-day attempt to survive whale attacks and the elements on three tiny lifeboats.
From the Publisher's Weekly Review: "With a gracefulness of language that rarely falters, Philbrick spins a ghastly, irresistible tale."
