Written in 1897, Kipling's adventure tale relates how the over-indulged son of a millionaire finds himself serving aboard a Portuguese fishing vessel. The superstitious world of the sea and the tough, orderly life of the ship form a backdrop to the boy's transition into manhood.
Harvey Cheyne is the over-indulged son of a millionaire. When he falls overboard from an ocean liner her is rescued by a Portuguese fisherman and, initially against his will, joins the crew of the We're Here for a summer. Through the medium of an exciting adventure story, Captain'sCourageous (1897) deals with a boy who, like Mowgli in The Jungle Book, is thrown into an entirely alien environment. This is the only edition of the novel in print, and it offers a stimulating introduction and detailed notes which help readers navigate among the historical, geographical, and maritime references found in the book.
