    Harvey Cheyne Jr an arrogant fifteen year old, greatly disliked by the annoyed passengers, spoiled son of a multi millionaire railroad tycoon from San Diego, my hometown is being taken to Europe by his parents on a luxury liner, a steamship, set in the late nineteenth century As they enter the Grand Banks of Newfoundland, a fertile fishing area, Harvey is seasick, not helped by smoking a strong cigar, he needs fresh air fast, going on deck his legs are a bit wobbly, head aching too, a rough sea s giant wave throws him overboard, the unconscious boy floats on the foaming surfacedoomed Fortunately the fishing fleet is all around there and a Portuguese fisherman, Manuel, from Madeira Island, been there also on a dory, a small fishing vessel used to catch cod, is surprised seeing the strange object, as Harvey will be when he awakes on board the parent boat At first the teenager doesn t know where but soon telling the owner captain, Disko Troop, of the seventy ton schooner, We re Here , from Gloucester, Massachusetts, to take him to New York His rich father will...

    CUCCIOLO D UOMO CRESCEQuesta still di Spencer Tracy insieme a Freddie Bartholomey al timone della nave l immagine pi famosa del film.Tra i suoi due romanzi pi famosi, Il libro della giungla del 1894 e Kim del 1901, si colloca questo Capitani coraggiosi del 1897 Kipling un cantore del Commonwealth, cio dell imperialismo inglese, che per lui un grandioso incrocio di razze con la bianca inglese a fare da capofila Io, invece, sono stupito pensando che il Commonwealth non solo esista tuttora, ma raggruppi ancora ben 54 stati L adulto insegna al ragazzino a guardare lontano.Con Capitani coraggiosi siamo non solo nella letteratura per ragazzi Young Adult e nella narrativa d avventura, ma in pieno coming of age, romanzo di formazione Libro educativo, edificante, che racconta la storia di un quindicenne, Harvey, ricco, viziato, strafottente, sostanzialmente maleducato, che cade in mare dal transatlantico che lo sta conducendo in Europa viene fortunosamente e fortunatamente ripescato da un peschereccio, il We re Here, dove passer mesi imparando il mestiere Ma soprattutto imparando a vivere, a faticare, a guadagnare il pane, a rispettare gli altri e il lavoro.I due adolescenti protagonisti, Freddie Bartholomew Harvey, a...

    I m writing this review to honour the likes that my friends have bestowed upon this book I tried to take part in a bookish bingo challenge, and, patting myself on the back, I got this Rudyard Kipling booklet How awful ...

    I read most of this aloud to my older boys as I was putting them to sleep at night, and I think that s probably the best way to navigate through Kipling s tale It s a lot of fun, but if you re reading silently, not trying on the accents as Kipling s written them, I think you miss a lot This book is chock full of sailing terms that Kipling never explains, nor does he provide a glossary, but I liked this Much of the time, I didn t understand what the characters were talking about in their daily business of sailing and fishing, but in a way my experience mirrored that of the main character, spoiled landlubber brat who is forced to get his sea legs Kipling s narration somewhat mirrors the slang and dialect of his characters, so it is very much a character itself, and I m glad he didn t step out of it to explain...

    This book was a refreshing change from modern life Suddenly I found myself among cod fisherman, learning the ropes alongside our hero, Harvey, and listening to sea ditties thanks to the vastly entertaining Audible version of this book Kipling brings pure adventure with his lively plots filled with near misses, ghostly fog, and surly sailors His skillful writing always makes me pause There are many interesting turns of phrase but also gr...

    A story of how one 15 year old rich boy s moment of bad luck changes his life, from spoiled brat to a mature, better person with solid values who can work well with others and doesn t need to prove his worth with questionable things and boasting Forced to spend a summer with fishermen no radios or other ways to communicate where he is no chance that the men would drop him off after picking him up from the sea where he had fallen he gets a good glimpse as he works with them of what their life is like and gradually his flaws are replaced with the things I ve mentioned It s nice to see in the end that even after the summer he stays in contact with them particularly Dan, a boy near his age who was one of the crew on that boat he s definitely heading for a better future, a better man that what would ve been if he hadn t had that moment ...

    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 aloud.I 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 articul...

    Finished reading this with the kids Enjoyed it, just didn t love it The last section should have ended about 20 pages earlier It was like Kipling hit the natural climax for the story and then felt he needed to write another twenty pages to make somebody happy and decided to just phone it in or the equivalent to phoning it in wou...

    Un racconto per ragazzi che ho letto soltanto adesso, da adulto Nonostante sia stato scritto a fine 800, resta un bel romanzo di formazione che, purtroppo, non so quanti giovani di oggi saprebbero apprezzare ...

    If you take a look at the informative channels on cable tv like National Geographic, Discovery, and Animal Planet, you will notice that there are a lot of programs about fishing Deadliest Catch, Monster Fish, Wicked Tuna Good to see fishermen plying their trade and makes one appreciate a job most people in cities do not give importance to.But a century before these shows, there was a book that portrayed fishing and the folks whose lives depend on it But it wasn t just a book about fishing it was also a tale of a coming of age for a spoilt brat who thought himself an untouchable prince Fallen from a ship where he was a passenger, Harvey Cheyne also fell from the lofty pedestal he was on Aided by rough but worldy wise fishermen, Harvey Cheyne emerged from a cocoon of luxury and detachment and into the real world where people can be your real teachers, mentors, companions, and friends Where work is not a source of shame but a virtue worthy to be proud of and not only keeps someone alive, but actually gives you the essence of LIVING.In a modern age of a yawning gap between the haves and the have nots, Captains Courageous is a fitting book for people to know the importance of hard work for suc...
