Characters come alive in Rudyard Kipling’s Captains Courageous.
Young Harvey Cheyne is rich, spoiled, prejudiced, and totally lacking in the real experiences of life. When the fifteen-year-old is accidentally washed overboard a great ocean liner headed for Europe, he is picked up by a fisherman and brought aboard the fishing schooner We're Here. Harvey's stories of privilege and wealth mean nothing aboard this hard-working vessel, and the boy receives many lessons in self-reliance, values, and hard-bitten reality—"things every man must know, blind, drunk, or asleep.”
Harvey, Long Jack, Tom Platt, Manuel, and many more great characters come to life in this rich retelling of life aboard the We're Here.
