Verne, Jules: Dick Sand - A Captain at Fifteen. v1. 24th Feb 2010
1878 adventure novel by Jules Verne. This is an 1878 translation published by the NY publisher George Munro.
Dick Sand is a 15 year-old sailor on the whaling ship "Pilgrim". Following a disaster, he finds himself captain of the ship, trying to bring the passengers back home safely, but Negoro, the ship's cook, manages to trick them, breaking one of their compasses, and eventually, after making sure the rest were lost, leads them to equatorial Africa, where he tries to sell them into slavery. Many exciting adventures follow.
