Item description for The Coral Island: A Tale of the Pacific Ocean (R. M. Ballantyne Collection) by Robert Michael Ballantyne...
Overview Probably the most popular and thrilling story by R.M. Ballantyne, The Coral Island is a breathtaking account of narrow escapes, harrowing trials while stranded in the south Pacific, the very real need of the cannibalistic, pagan savages for the light of the Gospel, and the courage of three young adventurers. Follow the journey of three boys - Ralph Rover, Jack Martin, and Peterkin Gay - as they survive on their own by the providence of God for months on end, from one exciting experience to another. When their ship is wrecked, they find themselves marooned on a coral island in the Pacific, and must learn how to make the most of what they have. A mirage leads them to a hidden underwater cave in the water where they keep a supply of food and necessities in case of danger. They learn to make their own weapons, hunt wild pigs, drink coconut "lemonade," and battle both cutthroat pirates and savage cannibals, braving all sorts of dangers in true manly fashion. Through this classic adventure tale, both reliance on God and the life-changing power of the Gospel are demonstrated.
Publishers Description When three boys find themselves shipwrecked on a South Pacific island, they must learn to survive in a sometimes beautiful, sometimes deadly new world. Sharks, cannibals, and pirates are only the start of their adventures. A classic tale of high adventure and boyhood courage
