Description

In 1819 the whaleship Essex set sail from Nantucket on a routine voyage. Fifteen months later, in the farthest reaches of the South Pacific, it was repeatedly rammed and sunk by an eighty-ton sperm whale. Its twenty-man crew made for the coast of South America in three tiny boats. During ninety days at sea under horrendous conditions, the survivors clung to life as one by one, they succumbed to hunger, thirst, disease, and fear. Impeccably researched and beautifully told, Philbrick draws on a remarkable range of archival and modern sources, including a long-lost account by the ship's cabin boy. In the Heart of the Sea will endure as a vital work of American history. "
