Here's a true-to-life adventure story. Arty is a 10-year-old boy who gets the chance of a lifetime -- he's hired to go on the maiden voyage of the famous schooner Bluenose in 1921. Young readers will delight in joining along with Arty as he learns his way around the ship amidst the dangers, excitement and intrigue of working on a fishing schooner. When Arty climbs to the top of a mast and spots another ship heading toward Bluenose on a collision course, even the captain is grateful for his help. Once he's back in Bluenose 's home port of Lunenburg, Arty has a real adventure to share with his family and friends.

In this story, based on the real experiences of young boys who worked on board Bluenose in the 1920s, Jacqueline Halsey has created a book that celebrates the story of the ship and her famous captain Angus Walters.
