This classic adventure story recalls the myth of the castaway in its tale of three sailors who, having survived a wreck, are swept into adventures both glorious and gory before their ultimate return to England. Published in 1858, The Coral Island is one of the best memorials to the work of Robert Michael Ballantyne.
"I was a boy when I went through the wonderful adventures herein set down. With the memory of my boyish feelings strong upon me, I present my book specially to boys, in the earnest hope that they may derive valuable information, much pleasure, great profit, and unbounded amusement from its pages. "
