Five children escape from a Children’s Home, run away and steal a boat, which they sail around the Outer Hebrides.
This book has a huge print run from London Metheun, but their warehouses were bombed in 1940 in Paternoster row; 5 million books were lost in the fires caused by tens of thousands of incendiary bombs. Consequently, there were very few copies in circulation. This is thee resurrection of a successful children’s adventure story.
