Consider the 2015 film "In the Heart of the Sea," which is based on this book.
Philbrick recommends in his notes that readers turn to Stove by a Whale: Owen Chase and the Essex, by Thomas Farel Heffernan, for further information about the Essex. The Jonah Man, a novel by Henry Carlisle, portrays a fictional version of the Essex disaster. You may also wish to consider the most famous work inspired by the Essex disaster: Moby-Dick, by Herman Melville. Consider also Philbrick’s other works about Nantucket, Away Off Shore and Abram's Eyes.
