This wonderful classic combines three unbeatable elements: a sea story, lively and dynamic characters, and a protagonist who undergoes a transformation.

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 small 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.

    " It was different from I expected, and I think what I expected would have been more interesting. I kept waiting for the plot to happen, and then realized when I was almost done, that what I'd read was the plot. Oh well. Still, a good educational experience. "
