"A Voyage with Captain Dynamite" is the story of three boys going out from Cottage City in a small yacht who are caught in a storm and run down by a larger vessel, a fillibuster.

Harry Hamilton rescues Juanita, a young Cuban girl, who is in prison, and who escapes in his clothes. --New York Times.
