They intend to camp on the island as before and ask nothing more than to do exactly as they did the first summer. However a bad bit of judgment while doing some tricky boat handling changes their plans and they find themselves camping out in a hidden valley above the lake, while the crew of the "Amazon" find they must cope with a Great Aunt who is a decidedly different type of relative from Captain Flint.

Some good sailing here, with some good seamanship lessons. A great book. (tm)  $14.95
