When fifteen-year-old Harvey Cheyne Jr, the spoiled son of a railway tycoon, is swept off his steamship by a wave and rescued by fishermen he learns some hard lessons about life and what it means to be a man.
After his demands to return to port are ignored and his nose bloodied by the captain, Harvey is taken on as a cabin boy until the We’re Here finishes her run.
Can the boy unused to manual labor learn the ropes at sea? Teddy Roosevelt said of Captains Courageous that it describes “in the liveliest way just what a boy should be and do.”
This edition is presented with all the original illustrations.
