£10.00

Macmillan Pocket Kipling: Captains Courageous is an 1897 novel, by Rudyard Kipling, that follows the adventures of fifteen-year-old Harvey Cheyne Jr., the spoiled son of a railroad tycoon, after he is saved from drowning by a Portuguese fisherman in the north Atlantic. The novel originally appeared as a serialisation in McClure’s, beginning with the November 1896 edition with the last instalment appearing in May 1897. In that year it was then published in its entirety as a novel, first in the United States by Doubleday, and a month later in the United Kingdom by Macmillan. It is Kipling’s only novel set entirely in North America.[1] In 1900, Teddy Roosevelt extolled the book in his essay “What We Can Expect of the American Boy,” praising Kipling for describing “in the liveliest way just what a boy should be and do.”
