Americaas first frontier was not the West; it was the seaaand no one writes more eloquently about that watery wilderness than Nathaniel Philbrick. In his bestselling "In the Heart of the Sea" Philbrick probed the nightmarish dangers of the vast Pacific. Now, in an epic sea adventure, he writes about one of the most ambitious voyages of discovery the Western world has ever seenathe U.S. Exploring Expedition of 1838a 1842. On a scale that dwarfed the journey of Lewis and Clark, six magnificent sailing vessels and a crew of hundreds set out to map the entire Pacific Oceanaand ended up naming the newly discovered continent of Antarctica, collecting what would become the basis of the Smithsonian Institution, and much more.

Fascinating and meticulous... A wonderful retelling. ("The New York Times Book Review")A breathtaking account of one of historyAEs greatest adventures. ("Entertainment Weekly")A worthy successor to "In the Heart of the Sea". ("The Wall Street Journal")"Sea of Glory" is a grand saga of scientific and nautical accomplishment. ("Newsweek")
