An ancient house built in 1873, a developmentally delayed boy, and a hidden manuscript combine to create the perfect treasure hunt—securing Herman Melville’s famous Moby-Dick manuscript, its value rising with each casualty.
The Moby-Dick Blues (Roundfire Books) by Michael Strelow chronicles the hunt for not only literary treasure, but the search for admiration and purpose: “The story of Arvin and his family and the manuscript for Moby-Dick, [is] the unlikely tale of unlikely characters just like Melville’s story.”
