Nathaniel Philbrick

Nathaniel Philbrick 2011 Cushing OratorChampion sailor, award-winning scholar and bestselling author Nathaniel Philbrick entertains his audiences with fascinating accounts of America’s past and tales of his own seagoing adventures. His lectures are delivered in the same brisk and engaging style that has made him one of the country’s most popular authors of historical narrative.

Mr. Philbrick first gained fame for his nonfiction classic In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex, which won the prestigious National Book Award in 2001. The book familiarized modern readers with the harrowing true story behind Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick.

More recently he authored Mayflower: A Story of Courage, and Community, and War, a bestseller with a unique take on the Pilgrims’ journey to Plymouth Rock. He has also penned accounts of the quest to map the Pacific Ocean (Sea of Glory) and the rich history of his beloved Nantucket (Abram’s Eyes and Away Off Shore), as well as more lighthearted books about sailing: The Passionate Sailor; Yachting, A Parody; and A Sunfish Sailor's Odyssey.
