A and the tough orderly life of the ship form a backdrop to the boy's transition into manho. This is Kipling's only novel concerning North America It is consistent with his others in the underlying theme that experience is the great teacher Harvey Cheyne is a coddled adolescent whose parents' wealth he takes for granted The bulk of the story concerns his going over the rail on an Atlantic steamship crossing and being rescued by the crew of a Great Banks fishing boatKipling has done a lot of research on North Atlantic fishing and the New England fishing crews He gets the details right as he does with his shorter description of American railroads late in the story Much of the plot is predictable and the details not nearly as interestingly presented as Patrick O'Brian does in his books called the Aubrey Maturin seriesGlad I read it but the old movie with Spencer Tracey was uite adeuate

Second reading November 2016First reading August 2014 I didn't really expect to love a sailor's story but clearly I didn't have any idea how much Leadership Education can be cultivated on the dangerous fishing lines of the Atlantic The book is totally different than anything else I have read by Kipling It is an American story as opposed to his typical Indian writing high adventure perfect for boys I couldn't keep my 7 year old away not to say that girls wouldn't enjoy it too and chock full of timeless lessons in how to become a real man I cannot highly recommend this as a Leadership Education classic that is family friendly and accessible as young as 6 or 7 as a family read aloudI did find that I struggled to understand the lingo on the ship I purchased the David Stuart Brilliance Audio version from Audible and it came to life for me Stuart sang spoke in accents and clearly articulated the jargon in such a way that I intuitively understood of the meaning than I would have had I just been reading a spine The audio was a treat
