The Swiss Family Robinson (Classic Starts Series). This book is filled with adventure, sorrow, and more! A family becomes shipwrecked on a deserted island, but they get many items from their ship including guns, ammunition, animals, and other items. They survive and thrive on this lush island, filled with everything else they need. In the beginning, a violent storm shipwrecks this family of six on two rocks near an island. The father devises a plan to get them off the ship and onto the island.

The Swiss Family Robinson is a family adventure story and as such should probably be read as a family when the kids are . Besides The Mysterious Island, I had also seen the Disney movie, The Swiss Family Robinson.

The Swiss Family Robinson is a family adventure story and as such should probably be read as a family when the kids are young. I don't think it's meant for us old, knitpicky grumps. How did it attain that status?

A beautiful story about survival, the Robinson family shows that one does . It is also a story about family relations

It is also a story about family relations. The book showcases a family of six that has to start all over without the basic amenities that make life easier in the eyes of society. The idea of being in an island with no human neighbors is daunting to say the least. The family was shipwrecked and everyone else on the ship perished when they deserted the ship. When the storm finally abated, they figured out a way to shore and immediately tackled the most urgent needs like food and shelter for the night.

While we have Defoe's Robinson Crusoe (Collector's Library) going solo (at least until Friday), and the stalwart soldiers of Verne's "The Mysterious Island (Modern Library Classics)", in "Swiss Family Robinson" we have the shipwrecked on a desert isle story, family style. I mean, doesn't everyone wished they lived in a treehouse? BTW - I still think of the treehouse at Disneyland as theirs, even though it has been re-themed for "Tarzan".

txt 69 Кб. CHAPTER ONE. Ship on the Rocks. I returned to my family. It's all right,' I said. The front part of the ship is between two rocks, so it's above the water. Tomorrow the sea will be calmer and we'll be able to reach the land. The children immediately became happier, but my wife understood the danger of our position. She prepared a meal and the boys went to bed, but my wife and I stayed awake and watched. The next day, it was not as windy and the sky was clear. If there are wild men on the island, they will hear it too. We don't want them to know we're here. We turned away from the beach and walked for about a mile.

The Swiss Family Robinson recounts the adventures of a family that is stranded on an island after a shipwreck. Luckily, they discover many supplies on the ship, including clothing, tools, fishing equipment, firearms, and various useful animals. They find even more treasures on the endlessly fruitful island, prospering and making exciting discoveries for the next ten years. The boys eventually grow into men, embarking on their own adventures and learning from each other and the land. One day the family finds a mysterious message tied to an albatross's leg. The message gives them a way back to civilization from friendly strangers, and finally leads the family members to make the hardest decisions of their lives: Which of them will stay on the island they have made their home, and which will make the difficult decision to leave the island and their family forever?
