Summary
"Mafatu's name means Stout Heart, but people call him a coward. He fears the sea because it killed his mother when he was a baby. And so, though his father is the Great Chief of Hikueru--an island whose seafaring people worship courage--he is afraid."

The Chief's son, Mafutu, sets out on a voyage of discovery with his faithful dog, Uri, and finds his courage after being driven out of his village for showing fear
