This beautiful copy of "In The Heart of the Sea" has been SIGNED by Nathaniel Philbrick on the title page! Winner of the 2000 National Book Award in Non-fiction. The author has restored this epic - which inspired the climactic scene in Herman Melville's Moby-Dick - to its rightful place in American history. Sebastian Junger dustjacket praise stating "Rich with detail....this is historical writing at its best - and at the same time, one of the most chilling books I have ever read." This is a timeless account of the human spirit under extreme duress, but it is also a story about a community, and about the kind of men and women who lived in a forbidding, remote island like Nantucket - a pioneer story that explores how we became who we are, and our peculiar blend of spiritualism and violence. It is also a tragic tale of survival against all odds. Its richness of detail, its eloquence, and its command of history make "In the Heart of the Sea" a vital book about America.
