“Maksimka” Stanyukovich in brief summary

Russian military steam clipper “Zabiyaka” quickly goes to the south. Sailors cleaned, washed, scrubbed and cleaned the deck: a military ship begins the day. Suddenly there was a loud, alarming cry from the sentry: “A man in the sea!”. All rushed to the deck and saw among the waves a fragment of the mast and a human figure on it. Then almost all the sails were removed and the boat with 16 rowers went to save the man. Soon he returned and, together with people, was brought aboard. On the deck came out and rescued – a little Negro 10-11 years old, in a tattered shirt, exhausted. He was immediately taken to the infirmary. The doctor began to take care of him.

Then, with the help of the midshipman, who knew English. language, the team learned that the boy was a servant from the captain of the American ship “Betsy”. The owner beat him every day. And two nights ago the ship collided with another ship and went to the bottom. After 2 days the arapchin

recovered and was about to climb to the deck, but he did not have any clothes.

Then an elderly sailor Ivan Luchkin appeared in the door of the infirmary. He brought an Arapchonka dress: “Wear it on your health, Maxim!” . Then Luchkin led him to the deck, introduced the sailors. Arachonka was received with full cordiality, invited to dinner with everyone. Luchkin tailored his shoes. He called to look at the artillery doctrine, which the boy liked very much. Attempts to teach a peanut to some Russian words.

So a month passed. Maxim could already somehow explain himself in Russian. He often amused the sailors with songs and dances. The voyage was nearing its end, but Luchkin, sensing the separation, was unhappy. The team also got used to Maksimka. The captain has allowed to leave it not the ship. Soon, the Zabiyaka again sailed. Maksimka was given the name Zabiyakin. After 3 years they returned to Kronstadt. Maksimka was sent to the school of medical assistant students. Luchkin retired to be near his pet.
