Captains Courageous

By Captains Courageous
Narrated by Mark F. Smith / 5 hours 54 minutes

From the author of The Jungle Book comes the tale of one man’s life-changing summer on the high seas.

At the start of Captains Courageous, one of literature's most beloved stories of the sea, a spoiled rich boy is literally swept away — dashed overboard from an ocean liner. Luckily, young Harvey Cheyne is rescued by a passing fishing vessel.

As it turns out, Harvey's apparent misfortune in tumbling from a life of pampered luxury into the humble company of a fishing schooner becomes a blessing in disguise. Compelled by the captain to earn his keep, Harvey loses his affectations as he learns the rewards of an honest day's labor amid the gruff and hearty companionship of the crewmen, who teach him to be worth his salt as they fish the waters off the Grand Banks of Newfoundland.

The author's only novel to unfold in an American setting, this lively tale resounds with Kipling's customary blend of adventure and humor. This attractive new audiobook edition offers an irresistible invitation to a master storyteller's enduring tale of a boy's initiation into adulthood.
