Heroes Ralph, Jack and Peterkin set sail on the Arrow and are the only three survivors of a fearful shipwreck. They are washed ashore on a seemingly idyllic coral island.
This tranquillity is violently disturbed, first by a tribe of bloodthirsty cannibals and then by the invasion of a vicious pirate and his gang of cut-throats. Will the boys thwart their enemies and live to see England again?
Largely based on Ballantyne’s own experience, as he sailed the seas and roved the countries of the World, ‘The Coral Island’ is a classic adventure story of the Victorian period.

The Coral Island - An old fashioned adventure
Thrilling, Fun, Informative.
This is an old fashioned adventure with all the elements needed to transport you to the islands of the South Pacific and give you a jolly good time. I read this book for the first time when I was 12 years old. I am now 59 and I have re-read it many times throughout my life.
Peter Joyce delivered the story with enthusiasm and feeling.
A Jolly Good Adventure
This is my favorite book ever
A memory of childhood!
