"This is a story of storms, a terrible shipwreck and of life on a beautiful and yet in many ways frightening, coral island.  the heroes are Ralph, Jack and Peterkin, three young members of the crew of the Arrow, and it is not surprising that, being young and hardy, they make the best of things on their island.
What a fascinating and exciting place that island proves to be, there are woods, mountains and even underwater gardens to be explored.  then warlike savages appear, only to be beaten off after a terrific fight.  Later a pirate schooner comes to the island and Ralph is captured.  How he manages at last to rescue his friends, and what happened after that, makes some of the most exciting reading in the English language."
