This is a great story, a classic. However, the publisher (I'm assuming) managed to have a TON of typographical errors which made the story harder to read, especially since it is in a vernacular that is already difficult to follow. Great story, but I would look for a copy from another publisher.

I found Captains Courageous by Rudyard Kipling by chance. Captains Courageous is a wonderful classic by Rudyard Kipling about which too many people have forgotten. Kipling might be better known for The Jungle Book and Kim but this story was great. It starts with a bang. Young 15 year old Harvey Cheyne, son of a wealthy family and spoiled, is on a sea voyage with his mother when they hit a storm in the Grand Banks off Newfoundland, and he is washed overboard. The plot is straightforward: a spoiled rich boy falls overboard and is picked up by a fishing boat where he learns some fast and hard life lessons. It is part adventure and part cautionary tale.
