Moby Dick      by Herman Melville

Call me Ishmael.

Herman Melville's thrilling nautical adventure--a timeless allegory and an epic saga of heroic determination and conflict.

At the heart of Moby-Dick is the powerful, unknowable sea--and Captain Ahab, a brooding, one-legged fanatic who has sworn vengeance on the mammoth white whale that crippled him. Narrated by Ishmael, a wayfarer who joins the crew of Ahab's whaling ship, this 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.
