Deux ans de vacances
Fifteen children aged between 8 and 14 and a ship's boy named Moko, who attend a boarding school in New Zealand find themselves alone on a boat adrift, which shortly drowns on a desert island of the Pacific Ocean. Fortunately they manage to retrieve food, clothing and firearms. They begin to settle inside a cave, using it as housing, and soon they found out that another castaway was stuck on that desert island. This, a Frenchman, had left a map, which made their first period of wild life much easier.
