Summary
Henry was an American boy who lived on the island of St. Thomas, in the blue Caribbean sea. More than anything in the world, Henry wanted to be a fisherman. No matter what he was doing, Henry thought of his father's boat, the Ariadne, and of how some day he would sail far out to sea. When the great day came, and Henry went on his first fishing trip, he had an adventure that not every boy had on a first trip. And after that Henry was, as his mother said, "a fisherman for true."
