Summary

Summary

Captains Courageous is Rudyard Kipling' s classic fable of a boy' s initiation into the fellowship of men, played out on the high seas of the late 1800s. When he falls overboard from a luxury liner, Harvey Cheyne, the spoiled son of an American millionaire, is rescued by a small New England fishing schooner. To earn his keep, Harvey must prove his worth in the only way the skipper and his hardy crew will accept: through the grueling mastery of a fisherman' s skills. Brimming with salty dialogue, crackling adventure, and mesmerizing visions of the sea, Captains Courageous is one of this Nobel Prize-winning author' s most enduringly popular tales.
