Rudyard Kipling's story of Harvey Cheyne, a rich man's spoiled son who falls off an ocean liner, is rescued by the Grand Banks fishing schooner We're Here out of Gloucester, Massachusetts. There isn't anything we're going to add to what has already been written about Captains Courageous, but can offer that the depiction of the day-to-day life of these hardy fishermen contributes, along with The Old Man and the Sea, seems to capture their spirit most accurately, and that spirit is still alive in our traditional fishing communities. 

We've provided a few pages from the novel that describe a multinational congregation of Grand Banks boats at "The Virgin."
