    Can a whale attack a ship? The shipwrecked crew of the whaleship Essex was living proof that it could when a whale displayed a fury never before witnessed, ramming and sinking their vessel in a matter of minutes in November 1820. The story of their survival is one rarely spoken of by Nantucketers even to this day, but National Book Award-winning author Nathaniel Philbrick courageously brings every shocking detail into the light.

    Mark says: "So great I want to hear the longer version."
    "Incredible Story"
    Overall

    Such an amazing story would be outstanding if handled as a novel rather than as a matter of fact bit of history. A bit of literary license could have moistened this somewhat dry lump of hard tack.
