What We're Reading Now
""In the Heart of the Sea" is a fantastic story of survival in the open sea. You never know what will happen next. The unfortunate crewmen of the "Essex" go through shocking experiences that include death, murder, and canniblism."
Katie Juday - Books-A-Million, Montgomery, AL

The ordeal of the whaleship Essex was an event as mythic in the nineteenth century as the sinking of the Titanic was in the twentieth. In 1819, the Essex left Nantucket for the South Pacific with twenty crew members aboard. In the middle of the South Pacific the ship was rammed and sunk by an angry sperm whale.
