KIRKUS REVIEW

This is the story of a New Zealander, Thomas Bell, on whom the hand of failure rested, who in 1878 decided to get away from it all and sailed for ""Sunday Island"" with the intention of growing sheep there, taking with him his wife and children. this account of their adventures is related by their surviving child, Mrs. Bessie Dyke. Highly fictionalized and with a distinctly adolescent flavor, the book should appeal to young adventurers, and despite its perhaps regrettable emphasis on youth, it should take its place in the literature of the South Seas.
