The Old Man and the Sea
The story is about a Cuban Fisherman who is an old man down on his luck. He hasn't caught a fish in over 80 days. He has a young boy as a friend that looks up to him.Santiago the old man was not a rich man with a large ship and fancy equipment, all he had was a skiff. This is also about an old man's ultimate test of strength, smarts and courage.
He is a very noble mandedicated to his work as a fisherman. He's been down on his luck and has gone day after day without a single caught fish. Each day he hopes that it will be the big catch. Every time he goes out, hetries to keep his spirits high because this could be the day for that catch.
One night he goes out alone fishing. He ends up far out at sea and with not land in sight. Finally this is the big one.This is the day of his biggest catch. A marlin gets hooked and now he must reel him, but then he realizes that this is a huge fish. He gave the fish some line hoping he'd tire easily, but he didn't.

But four hours later the fish was still swimming steadily out to sea, towing the skiff and the old man was still braced solidly with theline across his back. Fish he said, I love you and respect you very much. But I will kill you dead before this day ends. Just then the fish gave a sudden lurch that pulled the old man down onto thebow and would have pulled him overboard if he had not braced himself and given some line. He struggled with this mighty fish till nightfall, but he still hasn't mastered this fish. That afternoon sometourists see the marlin's skeleton waiting to go out with the tide and ask a waiter what it is. Trying to explain what happened to the marlin the waiter replies, but the tourists misunderstand andassume that's what the skeleton is. Back in his shack with Manolin sitting beside him. Santiago sleeps again and dreams of the young lions he had seen along the coast of Africa when he was a young man....
