In the Heart of the Sea


Now a major motion picture directed by Ron Howard, this Winner of the 2000 National Book Award for Nonfiction tells the riveting true story that inspired Melville's Moby-Dick. In 2019, the National Endowment for the Arts selected In the Heart of the Sea for their NEA Big Read program.


"A book that gets in your bones...Philbrick has created an eerie thriller from a centuries old tale....Scrupulously researched and eloquently would have earned Melville's admiration."
