Harry Milvaine, also known as, The Wanderings of a Wayward Boy by Gordon Stables. Excerpt from the book: Young Harry Milvaine stood beside the water-tank, and the water-tank itself stood just outside the back kitchen door. He was hardly high enough, however, to look right over it and down into it, though it was full to the brim—overflowing in fact, and the water still pouring in from the spout that led from the house-top. But Harry was of an inventive turn of mind, young though he was, so he went and fetched a stable bucket, and very heavy he thought it; but when he turned this upside down and mounted on the bottom, he was possessed of a coign of vantage which was all that could be desired.Harry had mastered the situation.This a great book for young boys. There are adventures at sea and in the Artic.This sounds like a very inventive boy, a young “MacGyver”. •This book contains some illustrations•This book uses the old spellings and words from the era when it was written

O'er Many Lands, on Many Seas

Not a breath of wind from any direction. Not a cloud in the sky, not a ripple on the ocean’s blue. Only when a bird alighted on the water, quisling rings of silver formed all around it, and widened and widened, but soon were lost to view. Or when a fish leaped up, or the dorsal fin of some monster shark appeared above the surface, the sea about it trembled for a time, trembled and sparkled as if a shower of diamonds had suddenly fallen there. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
