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.
