From the author of Mayflower, Valiant Ambition, and In the Hurricane's Eye--the riveting bestseller tells the story of the true events that inspired Melville's Moby-Dick. Winner of the National Book Award, Nathaniel Philbrick's book is a fantastic saga of survival and adventure, steeped in the lore of whaling, with deep resonance in American literature and history. 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. In the Heart of the Sea, recently adapted into a major feature film starring Chris Hemsworth, is a book for the ages.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Nathaniel PhilbrickPublisher: Penguin GroupPublished: 05/01/2001ISBN: 9780141001821Pages: 320Weight: 0.65lbsSize: 7.90h x 5.20w x 1.00dAward: Massachusetts Book Award (MassBook) - Honor BookReview Citations: Booklist 04/01/2001 pg. 1461Entertainment Weekly 05/04/2001 pg. 61New York Times 05/06/2001 pg. 36Outside 06/01/2015 pg. 86Accelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 45207 / In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship EssexReading Level: 8.8 / Interest Level: Upper Grade / Point Value: 14
