"Return to Robinson Island" is the first Swiss Family Robinson sequel in over one hundred years and begins 15 years after the Robinson family was shipwrecked on a remote island in the East Indies. Ernest Robinson is 27 years old, and a 1 st Lieutenant in the British Royal Navy. When Ernest's commanding officer, Captain Charlie, is court-martialed for war crimes, Ernest is forced to tell the truth even if his testimony sends his former Captain to prison. Meanwhile, to the surprise of the Robinsons, treasure is found on the island, and the Robinsons soon find themselves in mortal danger when Captain Charlie vows to make the treasure his own.

What ensures is a page-turning, action-packed adventure in which the Robinson Family must use survival skills and wartime tactics to safeguard their lives and home. Weaved throughout the action-packed adventure, is a thread of love and romance. Readers will find that "Return to Robinson Island" includes interesting facts from the original 1812 story that have been lost over the years. "Return to Robinson Island" is sure to keep you entertained!

"I began writing the book eleven years ago when my children were young. I would tell my children late night stories that emphasized family values, wholesome living and the ability to survive against any obstacle. The Robinsons were faced with many of the same challenges that exist in the world today that threatened families, nations, and freedom." TJ Hoisington
