Harvey Cheyne is the pampered son of a multimillionaire who falls off an ocean liner and is rescued by a small fishing boat. After being punched in the nose by the captain of the vessel for smart-mouthing him, Harvey quickly learns respect, toughness, and gratitude. He steps up from self-centeredness into the difficult but fulfilling realm of self-reliance and unselfishness.

A popular favorite since its first publication in 1897, the novel remains a classic story of youthful initiation and a lively tribute to the author's famous code of bravery, loyalty, and honor among men. Download and start listening now!

    " Sometimes it was not fun doing heavily accented English to English translating, but over all I did enjoy this book. "

    " THis was ok, but the version I read was by "books on tape" and I didn't like the reading the narrator did. I was expecting more excitment. "

    " This is an excellent short adventure story. I think one thing that Kipling does particularly well in his short books like this one is to capture the speech of the characters and although I know very little of ships, it seems as though he has effectively use d the vocabulary of the sea. "

    " You know, it just doesn't hold up very well. That's a general observation. Harvey's transition from spoiled snob to eager fisherman was just too quick; and the dialect and jargon were real stumbling blocks. About halfway through, I just lost interest. "
