Publisher's Description

This dramatic nineteenth-century nautical adventure and classic coming-of-age story is one of Rudyard Kipling’s most enduringly popular works.

Harvey Cheyne Jr., the teenage son of a millionaire American railroad tycoon, is sailing to Europe on a luxury liner when he falls overboard off the coast of Newfoundland. He’s saved from drowning by the We’re Here, a New England fishing schooner captained by Disko Troop. He’s alive, but his tough new companions find him to be spoiled and ignorant.
 
Desperate to get back to the world he knows, Harvey must prove his worth as one of the crew by mastering the challenging tasks and physical labor of life at sea. With help from the captain’s son, Dan, he braves a number of risky exploits and adventures as they travel along the Grand Banks of Newfoundland. Shedding his expectations of a pampered life, Harvey begins to embrace the tough work of a fisherman.
 
Filled with thrilling action, this classic sea story will delight and excite readers of all ages.

Joseph Rudyard Kipling (1865–1936) was born in Bombay and educated in England. He returned to India to begin a career in journalism and would go on to become one of the most popular and acclaimed writers of his day. Among his best-loved works is The Jungle Book, a collection of stories about a boy raised by wolves in the Indian jungle, which was adapted into the classic Disney film of the same name. In 1907, Kipling became the first English-language writer to win the Nobel Prize for Literature.
