Description
In May 1841, the Massachusetts whaleship Sharon set out for the whaling ground of the northwestern Pacific. A year later, while most of the crew was out hunting, Capt. Howes Norris was brutally murdered. When the men in the whaleboats returned to the ship, they found four crew members on board, three of whom were covered in blood, the other screaming from atop the mast. Single-handedly, the third officer launched a surprise attack to recapture the Sharon, killing two of the attackers and subduing the other. An American investigation into the murder was never conducted-even when the Sharon returned home three years later, with only four of the original twenty-nine-man crew on board. Now, an award-winning maritime historian dramatically re-creates the mystery of the ill-fated whaleship-and reveals a voyage filled with savagery under the command of one of the most ruthless captains to sail the high seas.
