One of the greatest sea yarns ever spun, In the Heart of the Sea is the true story of the extraordinary events which inspired Herman Melville's masterpiece Moby Dick.


When the whaleship Essex set sail from Nantucket in 1819 the unthinkable happened. In the very furthest reaches of the South Pacific, she was rammed and sunk by an enraged sperm whale and her twenty crewmen forced to take to the open sea in three small boats. Ninety days later one surviving boat was rescued off the coast of South America - and a terrifying story of desperation, cannibalism and courage revealed.
