Jules Verne achieved a triumph when his imagination, fired by Johann Wyss’ “The Swiss Family Robinson,” was impelled to carry the story a step farther in “The Castaways of the Flag.” An island was ever his spiritual home; and no one was ever happier upon one. “The Castaways of the Flag” is a satisfactory sequel to “The Swiss Family Robinson” because it is the production of Jules Verne, an original genius, set in motion by Johann Wyss. Wherever “The Swiss Family Robinson” is heard, “The Castaways of the Flag” should also be heard.
The Swiss Family Robinson recounts the adventures of a father, mother, and four sons marooned on a tropical island. The story unfolds beginning with the tragic storm that claims their ship and the lives of the captain and crew, continuing with their own harrowing battle with the elements and dangerous landing on the remote island shore, and onward through their ingenious use of the materials at hand to survive. They encounter adventure after adventure, with discovery following upon discovery until, at last, they must face the choice of staying on the island that has become their home, or return to a civilization they left behind.
