Inspire courage in the face of defeat with the classic novel, The Old Man and the Sea, by Ernest Hemingway. (Contains some objectionable language.) Softbound, 130-page book for grades 7 and up.
This story tells of an old Cuban fisherman down on his luck and struggling for an identity among the other fisherman in his village.
After going 84 days without catching a fish, Santiago faces the ridicule of being unlucky by his fellow fisherman and attempts to go out and find the big catch to prove otherwise. Managing to hook a monstrous marlin, the old Cuban fisherman is pulled far out into the Gulf Stream in his small skiff.
Santiago now faces the supreme ordeal of his life as an agonizing battle ensues to wear down the fish in order to kill it with a harpoon.
