|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.
