A Different Whaling Book

Also in chapter 45, Ishmael makes reference to the whaleship Essex in his defense I would title, "When Whales Attack." This true tale is most engagingly retold by Nathaniel Philbrick in a recent J nonfiction book called Revenge of the Whale: The True Story of the Whaleship Essex. I read it a couple of years ago and highly recommend it, whether you are looking for something for the Librarians Reading Challenge or otherwise.

Technorati tag (kind of):
