The ordeal of the whale ship Essex was an event as mythic in the nineteenth century as the sinking of the Titanic was in the twentieth. In 1819, the Essex left Nantucket for the South Pacific with twenty crew members aboard. An angry sperm whale rammed the ship and it was slowly but surely sinking with the 20 member crew. A truly gripping read.
