In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex, by Nathaniel Philbrick
Hardcover in Dust Jacket. Very Good condition but dust jacket does show wear and does not appear new.
In 1820, the whaleship Essex was rammed and sunk by an angry sperm whale, leaving the desperate crew to drift for more than ninety days in three tiny boats. Nathaniel Philbrick uses little-known documents and vivid details about the Nantucket whaling tradition to reveal the chilling facts of this infamous maritime disaster.
