Harvey Cheyne, the spoiled fifteen-year-old son of a millionaire, falls from an ocean liner off the coast of Newfoundland in the 1890's. Rescued by the crew of a fishing schooner, he must remain on board and work the season. His experiences and the bonds he forms with the crew change him from a spoiled adolescent to a self-reliant young man. This production is an excellent choice for family listening. It's well-read by David Stuart, with believable New England and various foreign accents. Lots of action and interesting conversations portraying life aboard a fishing schooner keep the pace moving. Here's a notable example of how well classics can work on audio. M.A.M. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 94]
