Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tor Classics are affordably-priced editions designed to attract the young reader. Original dynamic cover art enthusiastically represents the excitement of each story. Appropriate "reader friendly" type sizes have been chosen for each title—offering clear, accurate, and readable text. 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.

Synopsis:

The toast of literary London at age 21, Rudyard Kipling won numerous awards, including the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907. When a spoiled millionaire's son falls overboard from a luxury liner and is rescued by a fishing schooner, he learns the true value of honesty, courage, and hard work. Over 4 million Tor Classics have been sold since 1986. Unabridged edition.
