The story takes place in 1894. Harvey Cheyne, a rich, young boy of fifteen, falls off a steamship hundreds of miles out to sea. He is rescued by a fishing boat.
“Take me back to New York!” Harvey commands the fishing boat captain. After smacking Harvey on the nose, the captain tells him, “You can work on my boat for $10.50 a month, or you can swim home!” And so begins this great adventure of life at sea.
