In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex

I was riveted to this long-ago whaling tragedy. An easy read with fascinating insight into the dangers of whaling and the men who followed that life. Hard to put down. I constantly referred to the maps, photos, and logs to give me a better idea of what these poor men suffered through. How horrifying. 4.5 stars.
