I cant find

The Essex its the true story of Moby Dick the story really just starts when the whaling boat sinks facinating story of survival and the English navy condoning cannabalism in certain case

Also Ship of Gold in the Deep Blue Sea great book on technonogy and gold salvage off of the carolina coast

Nathaniels Nutmeg (Spice Islan) a great story on The Dutch and The English and how we ended up with Manghatan Island and it all relates to Nutmeg and the Black plague. If you were caught stealing on a Dutch ship you had on arm tied behind you back and your hand nailed to the mast an you had to pull it loose yourself also for a murder you were lashed to the dead person and thrown overboard. Tough stuff all recommended reads

Is it good or bad that I actually have just about all of those books?
