Ernest Hemingway recommended this author and this short story. In his view it is Stephen Crane's best.
Four men in an open boat off the coast of Florida. They have been shipwrecked. The open boat is a ten-foot dingey. The waves are roiling in. Three days and two nights in icy waters-- bailing out water, rowing and rowing. Land is in sight, but can it be reached?
The writing is simple, but ever so powerful. What one feels is the puniness of man and the strength, the beauty and the overwhelming power of nature. In extremity where can men turn, but to to each other.
Read this. It is very good.
