This is a great story of a boy, Harvey who has never done any work of any kind. His father is a multi-millionaire, never training his son; and his mother a lovely lady who just spoils their son. On a trip to Europe by ship, he falls overboard and is picked up by a schooner, the We're Here. On board the schooner Harvey learns how to work, and he and the Captain's son, Dan, become best friends. Eventually, the We're Here puts into port, and Harvey and his parents are reunited. This is a story of the sea, and of men who earned their living from it, of what it meant to them.

I think that everyone should read this story.

Kipling's classic story about a young student who falls overboard from a luxury liner and is rescued by a fishing ship. The fishing captain does not believe him and so this student winds up working as he has never worked before. If he wants food and a berth he must toil mightily for the fish. A gripping portrait of the sea and its men.

A classic! But beware, you may need your encyclopedia to understand the sea language. And one of the best parts of the book has to do with a boat, a knife and hmmmm..is that a fish??
