THE SWISS FAMILY ROBINSON
This book talks about the surprising story of a family compounded of the father, his wife Elizabeth and their four sons, Fritz, 15, Jack, 13, Ernest, 11 and Francis, 8 who nobody of them were described in this book, neither fisically, neither in his temperament, etc. The book only talk about all the adventures that a family lived looking for survive in an empty island.
This story is explained by the chief of the family, the father, which name is never said in the book. This man begins explaining that many years ago, his family and him left Switzerland and boarded a ship over the waters of the Pacific Ocean, however, they never imagined that they never could arrive to their destiny (by the way that this fact never is mentioned). Their real final destination was an empty island near New Guinea, where they were forced to establish a colony in order to survive in a unknown place.
During six days, the ship had to face with a violent storm, the wind howled and tore at the sails. On the seventh day, the masts ripped apart and fell into the sea and the ship began to fill with water. All the crew was in panic and began to pray to God.

So the family Robinson, had one consolation, the ship was safe for at least up to the next morning because it was plugged between two rocks. Probably, the next day, they could reach the shore.
Fritz, the oldest boy, proposed his family to look for something to help them to make some life jackets. In the kitchen, they find some small wooden butter tubs that they tied together, two by two, using towels…and eureka! They had made six life jackets.
The next morning, when the sea was calm, they put on their new life jackets, but his brother Jack advised him that probably he could swim but he and his family couldn’t. He proposed to make a float of rafts and get to the land that way, so he went to look what he could find. Suddenly, Jack opened the doors of the captain’s quarters with two huge dogs, Turk and Flora.
The family saw four casks floating in the water, they cut them in half, made eight tubes, each big enough to hold one person. Then, they nailed two planks on each ...
