Series: Extraordinary Voyages #17
Dick Sand, A Captain at Fifteen is the 17th book in the Extraordinary Voyages series by Jules Verne. Dealing with the issues of the African slave trade, the book follows fifteen year old Dick Sands who serves on the schooner Pilgrim, a whaler that normally voyages across the Pacific in their efforts to find targets. Several days into their journey north-east, the Pilgrim encounters a shipwreck, with only five African-American survivors (Tom, Actéon, Austin, Bat and Hercule) plus a dog (Dingo), all of whom are brought into the ship and offered passage to America.
