    Captains Courageous is Rudyard Kipling’s classic fable of a boy’s initiation into the fellowship of men, played out on the high seas of the late 1800s. When he falls overboard from a luxury liner, Harvey Cheyne, the spoiled son of an American millionaire, is rescued by a small New England fishing schooner. To earn his keep, Harvey must prove his worth in the only way the skipper and his hardy crew will accept: through the grueling mastery of a fisherman’s skills.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Although written at the turn of the century, Kipling still captivates the reader (and listener) with morals and issues that continue to be important in today's society. A must read short novel that gets better when narrated by George Guidall! Guidall brings out the characters like no one else can. A wonderful audio book that I recommend for kids ages 1 to 100!


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have had the pleasure of listening to Guidall's narration of "Typhoon" by Joseph Conrad. Guidall has the rare ability to bring the story to life as if you were there walking the deck with the characters in the book! His talents have never let me down yet and I actively look for his name as narrator of an audio book - he's that good.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were times that I would find myself laughing with the story and yes, a damp eye for the sad parts. This story has the ability to move you emotionally!


    Any additional comments?

    As each generation passes, I think we loose the realization of just how every day life has changed along with our language usage. This short novel is a great bridge to our past and forces us to remember the sacrifices people made to "put bread on the table".
