Nathan Johnson is the son of a sea captain. His father was a brutal and seemingly uncaring man who continually harassed Nathan to shape up and meet his standards. Nathan never could and ended up running away from home. His first job on a ship was for his uncle (his mother’s brother) who traded along the west coast of the United States. Nathan’s first voyage was to be very unlucky as he was the only survivor of his ship which went down in a storm. Nathan was taken into the Makah tribe first as a slave and then as a son to the chief. Over the years, Nathan only wanted one thing, to escape. When the time came, he managed to escape and then continue his adventures which would take him to the Fuji Islands.
Susannah Drake is the daughter of a minister who is called to be a missionary in Fuji. She cajoles her father into taking her with him. Reluctantly, he agrees. The ocean voyage is very taxing. Boredom, seasickness, death, pirates, wounded father, all combine to make her voyage exciting. What will she find when they reach their destination?
