IN THE HEART OF THE SEA

by | Read by Scott Brick

History • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2000

Written from the journals of two survivors, this true-life story is said to be the inspiration for Melville's MOBY-DICK. Narrator Scott Brick introduces the listener to the nuances of whaling in l820. Following the voyage of the ESSEX, whose port is Nantucket, Brick's reliably tracks the mission of its crew, before and after it is rammed by a bull sperm whale and left in peril in the Pacific Ocean. Brick's casual yet composed manner reports this chronicle of courage and survival, creating an appreciation for the tale it tells. B.J.L. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 01]
