Pastor Robinson and his family are traveling from Switzerland to New Guinea when they are shipwrecked somewhere in the far southwestern Pacific Ocean. They remain onboard until the water loosens the planks from the hull, and the vessel is torn apart. The four Robinson children help load the animals and supplies into several small tubs, and one-by-one they make their way to a nearby uninhabited island and establish an elaborate settlement. They labor together diligently to adapt to this new circumstance. They battle pirates and the environment, and also tame many of the island animals to manage the whole into a functional community that they eventually call "New Switzerland." This fast-paced adventure illustrates how design and skill make it possible to prevail over almost any obstacle.
