"Captains Courageous": A Story of the Grand Banks  (1897) 
by Rudyard Kipling
Captains Courageous is an 1897 novel, by Rudyard Kipling, that follows the adventures of Harvey Cheyne Jr., the arrogant and spoiled son of a railroad tycoon. Washed overboard from a transatlantic steamship and 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 the We're Here, Disko Troop, offers him a job as part of the crew until they return to port. With no other choice, Harvey accepts. — Excerpted from Captains Courageous on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
