    Captains Courageous

    by Rudyard Kipling

    Book Description

    Rudyard Kipling's Captains Courageous follows fifteen year old Harvey Cheyne Jr through his trials and tribulations. As the son of a wealthy railroad tycoon, Harvey is spoiled and largely unaware of the ways of the world. When he is stranded on the shore of the Grand Banks after having been washed overboard from his transatlantic steamship, he meets the Captain of We're Here and has no choice to accept a position on his ship. Harvey's adventures on the ship teach him about industry and consideration for others while Kipling weaves in themes of class differences and humility.
