In the Heart of the Sea

The Epic True Story That Inspired 'Moby Dick'



Σύνοψη του βιβλίου "In the Heart of the Sea"

The epic true-life story of one of the most notorious maritime disasters of the nineteenth century - and inspiration for 'Moby Dick' - reissued to accompany a major motion picture due for release in March 2015.

The sinking of the whaleship Essex by an enraged sperm whale in the Pacific in November 1820 set in motion one of the most dramatic sea stories of all time: the twenty sailors who survived the wreck took to three small boats (one of which was again attacked by a whale) and only eight of them survived their subsequent 90-day ordeal, after resorting to cannibalising their mates. Three months after the Essex was broken up, the whaleship Dauphin, cruising off the coast of South America, spotted a small boat in the open ocean. As they pulled alongside they saw piles of bones in the bottom of the boat, at least two skeletons' worth, with two survivors - almost skeletons themselves - sucking the marrow from the bones of their dead ship-mates.
