Staff Reviews


This might be my favorite non-fiction book of all time. It has so much, I barely know where to begin. It is a history of Nantucket, a history of American whaling, and one of our country's great adventure stories. The tragedy of the whaleship Essex inspired another book you might have heard of--Moby Dick by Herman Melville.

— Andrew
