A tale of seafaring adventure. Harold, a boy of sixteen, boards a ship in New York to sail for Liverpool where he'll meet his family. After some rough weather the ship becomes embroiled in mutiny. Harold, Captain Wales, and couple other men are set adrift in a quarter boat to fend for themselves. After drifting for several days, and beginning to despair of their prospects for survival, they are picked up by a whaler headed to the Arctic. Eventually, they make port in Reykjavik and board another ship to continue on their way to England, arriving in London on Christmas Eve.
