Stacpoole, Henry De Vere: The Blue Lagoon. v1, 14 Jan 2008
The Blue Lagoon is a romance novel by Henry De Vere Stacpoole, first published in 1908. The novel is the first of the Blue Lagoon trilogy, the second being The Garden of God (1923) and the third being The Gates of Morning.
The novel is about two young children and a galley cook who are the survivors of a shipwreck. In the turmoil of the burning ship from which they escaped, they become separated from another lifeboat that the boy's father (who is the girl's uncle) is in and drift out to sea. After days afloat, they arrive and are stranded on a lush tropical island in the South Pacific. The cook, Paddy Button, assumes the responsibility for caring for the small children, teaching them how to behave, how to forage for food, etc.

Wow, unitl I read this, I didn't know they used this novel as the basis for the 1980 US movie starring Brook Shields. Well more specifically they remade the 1949 version of the movie that was based on this book. Good find. Thank you for this.
