Description

Can a whale attack a ship? The shipwrecked crew of the whaleship Essex was living proof that it could when a whale displayed a fury never before witnessed, ramming and sinking their vessel in a matter of minutes in November 1820. The story of their survival is one rarely spoken of by Nantucketers even to this day, but National Book Award-winning author Nathaniel Philbrick courageously brings every shocking detail into the light. The result is this unforgettable and riveting account of the horrors of survival at sea.

Award-winning performance artist and poet Taylor Mali again brings another exciting and important slice of American history alive.
