Harvey Cheyne fell oveboard off a luxury liner and was saved by the schooner We're Here. But instead of thanking his rescuers, the filthy rich, spoiled rotten kid demanded the Gloucester fishermen sail back to New York. Then Harvey got the shock of his life.

A punch in the mouth.

Capt. Disko Troop didn't know who Harvey's millionaire dad was. And didn't care. His ship would return to port when her holds were full--in about six months.

The world of Disko and Dan Troop, Long Jack, Salters and mad Penn. A world of struggle and backbreaking challenge, where honor meant more than money, and trust meant more than fame. Where men's minds, hearts, and strong muscles were pitted against the awesome majesty, fury, and terror of the unending depths: the world of wooden ships and high seas.

And if Harvey Cheyne survived, his life would never be the same.
