Ruth Yeah, I thought so too. It looks like an awesome read! I found on some random list on Goodreads when I was looking for a book about the shipwreck of The Essex (part of the inspiration behind Moby Dick - which I just started a couple days ago).

Mike Hensley Which one are you reading? I read heart of the sea a couple of years ago. It was awesome.

Ruth Right now I'm reading Moby Dick. But eventually I want to read "Narrative of the most extraordinary and distressing shipwreck of the whaleship Essex" by Owen Chase (who was one of the few survivors of the Essex). I've heard "Heart of the Sea" is wonderful too.

I just watched a great documentary about Whaling on PBS a few weeks ago that you might be interested in called "Into the Deep." http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexper... It was awesome! Talked a lot about The Essex (& Moby Dick too). It totally rekindled my interest in finally reading Moby Dick.
