After greater than a century of silence, the real tale of 1 of history's so much infamous mutinies is published in Joan Druett's riveting "nautical homicide secret" (USA Today). On might 25, 1841, the Massachusetts whaleship Sharon set out for the whaling floor of the northwestern Pacific. A 12 months later, whereas many of the team was once out searching, Captain Howes Norris used to be brutally murdered. whilst the boys within the whaleboats again, they discovered 4 staff contributors on board, 3 of whom have been coated in blood, the opposite screaming from atop the mast. Single-handedly, the 3rd officer introduced a shock assault to recapture the Sharon, killing of the attackers and subduing the opposite. An American research into the homicide was once by no means conducted--even whilst the Sharon lower back domestic 3 years later, with in simple terms 4 of the unique twenty-nine group on board. Joan Druett, a historian who is been known as a feminine Patrick O'Brian by means of the Wall highway magazine, dramatically re-creates the secret of the ill-fated whaleship and divulges a voyage packed with savagery below the command of 1 of the main ruthless captains to sail the excessive seas.
