Captains Courageous (Akasha Classic) (Hardcover)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
From the author of The Jungle Book comes the tale of one man's life-changing summer on the high seas. When a fishing schooner rescues a young man from the ocean off Newfoundland, they don't believe his wild tales of being a millionaire's son, nor do they appreciate his spoiled and lazy manner. But Harvey Cheyne is in fact a pampered rich kid whose fall off the deck of a luxury liner has turned his world upside down. Forced to become one of the crew until the boat finishes its expedition, Harvey finds there is more to life than getting everything you want. Rudyard Kipling's fascination with the hard and often dangerous life of New England fishermen shines through in this adventure story, which will delight readers of all ages.
