Call It Courage, by Armstrong Sperry
Mafatu's name means "Stout Heart," but his people call him a coward. Ever since the sea took his mother's life and spared his own, he has lived with deep fear. And even though his father is the Great Chief of Hikueru -- an island whose seafaring people worship courage -- he is terrified, and so scorned.
By the time he is fifteen years old, Mafatu can bear it no longer. He must conquer his fear alone...even if it means certain death.
