I guess many people will raise this masterpiece called, “two years’ vacation” by Jules Verne when they hear what your favorite survival story is.
I read it when I was eight years old. I’m not sure if schools still do that, but most elementary schools used to sell recommended books before thwy had a long vacation like summer or winter. The direct translation of the survival book’s title in Japanese is “The record for drift by 15 boys”. I certainly knew that this should be adventure story.I bought and read it during summer vacation.
The story is that some students in New Zealand boarded on schooner. They lost a way because of storm, and landed on Unknown Island. They were confused, but tried to find a way to live in the island by searching it. By gathering their knowledge, they organized the rule to live in the island like a law that adults do. This story also gives us some boy’s friendship. Some boys aren’t in good relation, but they overcome by helping each other.
I think this story has full of excitement, and gives all children dream.
