Revenge of the Whale
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. Adapted for Young People from In the Heart of the Sea by Nathaniel Philbrick.
