A terrible storm strands a Swiss pastor, with his wife and four sons, on a tropical island. Providentially, the Robinsons are optimistic and inventive, and with what they salvage from the wrecked ship, and the island's abundant fruits, plants and animals, they soon adapt—each day discovering new dangers, skills and delights in their strange new life.

  Whoa! Suspenseful...

This is about a family of six who get shipwrecked on a deserted island. Wow, those people survived there for ten years! They are self-dependent and not lazy. I think a person who really likes adventure stories would really like this book.
