Gayle’s Gable

After surviving a hurricane in open water at age three, Mafatu carries an unrelenting dread of the sea. Ostracized by the other boys, Mafatu realizes he must try to master his fear. He secretly leaves his island of Hikueru and faces the terrifying ocean alone. When a storm deposits him on an unknown island, he must learn to survive and then find home again. Will he return as the Boy Who Was Afraid or as Mafatu, Stout Heart? Armstrong Sperry’s Call It Courage earned a Newbury Medal.
