Summary (IBList user synopsis):

A minister, his wife, and four young sons are shipwrecked in a storm and deserted by the crew. Forced back onto their own devices, they make their way onto the shores of a wild and uninhabited island. With what things they can salvage from their ship plus a great deal of pluck and imagination, they turn their desert island into a home so agreeable they have no wish to be rescued.
