History Lessons: An Interview with Nathaniel Philbrick

by John Schoen

Nathaniel PhilbrickNathaniel Philbrick, recipient of the National Book award for his historical maritime narrative In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex (Penguin), sat down with us recently to discuss his love for history and the incredible learning process of creating larger works of nonfiction. Fixtures of the New York Times Bestseller list, his books portray a variety of complex events in American history ranging from the trials and political intrigues of the Mayflower’s voyage to the New World to Custer’s legendary tragic defeat at the Battle of the Little Bighorn. The practical result of thorough research and skillful prose, Philbrick’s work has garnered praise from academics and history buffs alike while resurrecting landmark historical events and crafting authentic portrayals of our nation’s past.

Philbrick’s writing has appeared in numerous publications, including The New York Times’ Sunday Book Review, Vanity Fair and The Wall Street Journal. A father of two and former NCAA All-American sailor, Philbrick is also founding director of the Egan Institute of Maritime Studies. He currently resides in Nantucket, Massachusetts.
