Call It Courage by Armstrong Sperry

Mafatu (which means "stout heart")is a coward. He is afraid of the sea, but he has a good point. A hurricane took his mother's life. He spends his life making nets and spears even though he doesn't use them. His friends tease him until he can't take it any longer. He takes of in a canoe in the middle of the bad weather season. Will he make it? Will he come back? Will he get rid of his fear? You get to find out!
