Detailed item info

The only one of Kipling's vels to be cast in an American setting, Captains Courageous endures as one of literature's most cherished and memorable sea adventures. Harvey Cheyne, spoiled millionaire's son, tumbles overboard from a luxury liner--only to be rescued by the crew of a Gloucester schooner. Thus begins the boy's second voyage into the rugged rites and ways of sailors. Like all Kipling's masterworks, Captains Courageous is an interweaving of art and moral purpose. Angus Wilson has said that it shows delicacy of craft and violence of feeling, exactitude and wile impressionism, subtlety and true incence. A popular favorite since its first publication in 1897, the vel remains a classic story of youthful initiation--and a lively tribute to the author's famous code of bravery, loyalty, an hor among men.

The toast of literary London at age 21, Rudyard Kipling won numerous awards, including the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907.

Publisher Description

All editions are complete and unabridged, and feature Introductions and Afterwords.
This edition of "Captains Courageous" includes an Introduction, Biographical Note, and Afterword by R.L. Fisher.
Harvey Cheyne fell oveboard off a luxury liner and was saved by the schooner "We're Here." But instead of thanking his rescuers, the filthy rich, spoiled rotten kid demanded the Gloucester fishermen sail back to New York. Then Harvey got the shock of his life.
A punch in the mouth.
Capt. Disko Troop didn't know who Harvey's millionaire dad was. And didn't care. His ship would return to port when her holds were full—in about six months.
The world of Disko and Dan Troop, Long Jack, Salters and mad Penn. A world of struggle and backbreaking challenge, where honor meant more than money, and trust meant more than fame. Where men's minds, hearts, and strong muscles were pitted against the awesome majesty, fury, and terror of the unending depths: the world of wooden ships and high seas.
And if Harvey Cheyne survived, his life would never be the same.
