Halcyon Island, attributed by author to Pitcairn in the Pacific Ocean and Tristan da Cunha in the South Atlantic, set the story of an isolated society living by rules passed down by word of mouth. The isolated Islanders, resistant of all newcomers, have always governed by the Teaching in the Book which has been orally passed down for generations. One day they find out, from one who reads, the real and astonishing story in the book.
Aimed at the junior adult reader with a classic message for all of us
