First hand account by the first mate of the Essex which was shipwrecked and sunk by a whale, this becoming the inspiration for Melville's Moby Dick. Describes the ramming and sinking of the ship by a furious sperm whale on Nov. 20, 1819 some 2,000 miles west of the Galapagos. The surviving twenty crew members struggled to exist in three open boats, but only eight lived through the ordeal. Six men who died of natural causes were eaten by their shipmates and one other crew member was shot and eaten. The voyage of the two small boats, rescued off South America, was twice as long as that of Bligh after the Bounty Mutiny.
