Moby-Dick is at once a thrilling adventure tale, a timeless allegory, and an epic saga of heroic determination and conflict. At its heart is the powerful, unknowable sea - and Captain Ahab, a brooding, one-legged fanatic who has sworn vengeance on the mammoth which whale that crippled him. narrated by Ishmael, a wayfarer who joins the crew of Ahab's whaling ship, here is the story of that hair-raising voyage, and of the men who embraced hardship and nameless horrors as they dared to challenge God's most dreaded creation and death itself for a chance at immortality.
