Nathaniel Philbrick, author of "Bunker Hill: A City, A Siege, A Revolution."
The New York Times bestselling author of modern and authoritative historical narratives, Nathaniel Philbrick's works include the National Book Award-winning In The Heart of the Sea and Boston Globe Horn Book Award recipient Revenge of the Whale, which both recounted the mythically tragic 19th century sinking that inspired Melville's Moby Dick. Philbrick's other books include Mayflower, a Pulitzer Prize finalist; Sea of Glory, which circled the earth's oceans with the U.S. Exploring Expedition of the 1840s; and The Last Stand, a chronicle of the iconic clash at Little Bighorn in 1876 that gave birth to the legend of Custer's Last Stand. In Bunker Hill, Philbrick offers a fresh perspective on the first major battle of the American Revolution, closely examining the cataclysmic nature of how our country began.
