A Sequel to Swiss Family Robinson from the author of Heidi
The work known as the Swiss Family Robinson has long enjoyed a well-merited popularity, and has been perused by a multitude of readers, young and old, with profit as well as pleasure. A Swiss clergyman resolved to better his fortune by emigration. He embarked with his wife and four sons -- the latter ranging from eight to fifteen years of age -- for one of the newly-discovered islands in the Pacific Ocean. Along the coast of New Guinea they encountered a violent storm arose, and finally cast it a wreck upon an unknown coast. The present volume is virtually a continuation of this narrative. The careers of the four sons -- Frank, Ernest, Fritz, and Jack -- are taken up where the preceding chronicler left them off. . . .
