In 1895, Nathan, a twelve-year-old African American, lives with his father and grandfather on Pea Island, the site of the only U.S. Naval Life-Saving Station in North Carolina where blacks can work. After helping the station’s surfmen rescue the crew of a wrecked ship one night, Nathan aspires to become a surfman himself. His father discourages him-there are only seven positions available-but Nathan persists in working toward his dream. Author’s note.
