Into the Deep: America, Whaling & the World: American Experience   Filmmaker Ric Burns tells an epic tale of three centuries of American whaling and the unique relationship between the hunter and the hunted, which begins in earnest in 1690 among the Quakers on Nantucket Island.

Only eight sailors survive. In 1840, Herman Melville ships out on a whaling vessel that meets another vessel near where the Essex sank.
