Summary note
This novel follows the adventures of fifteen-year-old Harvey Cheyne Jr., the spoiled son of a railroad tycoon. After washing overboard from a transatlantic steamship he is saved from drowning by a fishing boat in the north Atlantic. Rescued by fishermen on the Grand Banks, Harvey cannot persuade them to take him ashore, nor convince them of his wealth. However, the captain of a passing schooner offers him a job as crew until they return to port. With no other choice, Harvey accepts, and there begins a series of trials and adventures where the boy learns to adjust to his rough new life, and takes the first steps towards becoming a man.
