  • Once a man and woman and boy were wrecked on an uninhabited coast. The boy's mother and father grew old, and at last the boy, a man now, was left alone. There in the wilderness he saw and did many wonderful things, but he had no one to show what he has seen or tell what he had done - he was alone.
  • This is the story of how, one by one, the man found himself a family.
