|Summary, etc.:|| Mafatu's name means "Stout Heart," but his people call him a coward. Ever since the sea took his mother's life and spared his own, he has lived with deep fear. And even though his father is the Great Chief of Hikueru-an island whose seafaring people worship courage-he is terrified, and consequently, he is severely scorned. By the time he is twelve years old, Mafatu can bear it no longer. He must conquer his fear alone. . . even if it means certain death. This classic tale of a young boy's hidden strength has been a favorite of readers of all ages since its 1940 publication-now this exclusive audio preserves its original poignancy and splendor, and brings Mafatu to life for future generations of listeners.Winner of Newbery medal
