Product Description

After days of being tossed and battered by a raging storm, the ship on which the narrator, his wife, and their four sons are passengers smashes against a reef - and the last lifeboat pulls away without them. Next morning, the intrepid, loving little family finds itself cast away on an uninhabited island. Never losing hope, they retrieve what they can from the ship and construct a life for themselves through their own resourcefulness - building a treehouse, finding such food as coconuts, sugarcane, honey and potatos, and securing themselves against danger. Adventure follows adventure as they explore the island, encounter wild birds and terrifying animals, plant crops, build sturdier shelters, and settle in for a long stay. Although there are many hardships, the family lives in peace and harmony, and even rescues a girl who herself is a castaway on a nearby island. Recommended for ages 8 to 12.

    I have looked for several years for an unabridged version of the book, and was thrilled with the quality. Would live to have a hardback version for my collection.

    We home school our 4 boys (grades 5,4,3,1). We studied from this book for the past several months. I read the chapter aloud (as the vocabulary can be challenging), our boys narrated, wrote a daily book report about the chapter. We used this book for our vocabulary, spelling, and arts and crafts. We LOVED this story. It was filled with adventure and godly family principals. It was a great story for us to base our studies out of. I would highly recommend it to others.

    My son who hates to read has really enjoyed this book. We read it together which I think helps. The study guide that we got to use with it suggests that you read the book in about a week. I tried to start that, but it was way too much reading. We would have to read 6 chapters a day. It's taking us a couple of weeks to read it and we seem to comprehend it better. I definitely recommend this book. my son is 11

    This book should be required reading in every Christian household. The Disney movie was good, but can't hold a candle to the original. My sons loved this book and it can be read aloud to young children as well. For boys in particular this is a great story of adventure, rugged invention, moral behavior, and dependence on God.
