First published in 1897, Kipling's timeless seafaring adventure tells of the escapades of Harvey Cheyne, the son of an American millionaire who, after falling from a luxury ocean liner, is rescued by the raucous crew of the fishing ship We Are Here. Obstinate and spoiled at first, and unacquainted with life on the high seas, Harvey in due course learns diligence and responsibility and earns the camaraderie of the seamen, who treat him as one of their own. Harvey's months aboard the We Are Here provide a delightful glimpse of life at sea and well-told morals of discipline, empathy, and self-reliance.
