Read full description of the books:
No verão de 1819, o baleeiro Essex partiu de Nantucket para mais uma expedição de caça à baleia. Quinze meses depois, o impensável aconteceu: numa região remota do Pacífico Sul, um cachalote de enormes proporções provocou o naufrágio do Essex.
A tripulação de 20 homens refugiou-se em três botes salva-vidas rumo à América do Sul, numa jornada épica pela sobrevivência. Três meses depois, os oito tripulantes que continuavam vivos foram encontrados à deriva. Para sobreviver, usaram todos os recursos, inclusive o canibalismo.

After moving to Nantucket in 1986, he became interested in the history of the island and wrote Away Off Shore: Nantucket Island and Its People. He was offered the opportunity to start the Egan Maritime Institute in 1995, and in 2000 he published In the Heart of the Sea, followed by Sea of Glory, in 2003, and Mayflower.
