Meet the Writers
A champion sailboat racer and a leading authority on the history of Nantucket Island, Nathaniel Philbrick has entranced landlubbers and seafarers alike with his fascinating explorations of historical shipwrecks. In our interview, Philbrick talks about how he'd characterize his writing style. "What I really like is narrative-driven nonfiction," he explains. "A story is important, I think, for anyone to engage with what happened in the past."
