Revenge of the Whale, the True Story of the Whaleship Essex: Library Edition

Average rating
4 out of 5
Based on 16 Ratings and 16 Reviews

Book Description
Philbrick has carefully adapted and abridged his adult title, In the Heart of the Sea. He tells the story of the Nantucket whaleship Essex, which sank in the Pacific in November 1820, after being deliberately rammed twice by an apparently enraged sperm whale. . . . With this masterful adaptation, Philbrick's work fills a void.
