The Bravest Man in the World

The Bravest Man in the World


Author Patricia Polacco tells an epic story of courage, inspired by the true story of historic events in 1912 on the great ship Titantic.

Aboard ship, Wallace Hartley, head musician, discovers Jonathan Harker, an orphaned Irish lad, as he slips into the bandmaster’s cabin to stowaway. Wallace notices the young boy’s interest in his violin and thus begins a friendship. No one could imagine what was to come on that ill-fated voyage over a hundred years ago.
