"Crusoes of Sunday Island is a factual account of the experiences and adventures of the Bell family on Sunday Island presented in story form [. . .] Mrs. Dyke, now in her eighty-ninth year, possesses a remarkable memory, and has told in full detail the story of her extraordinary childhood and of her parents heart-braking misfortunes in the early years of their Sunday Island sojourn. [. . .] This story of an actual family's adventures obviously cannot be compared as a work of literature with Robinson Crusoe nor with the uninhibited invention of The Swiss Family Robinson. But I hope that its authenticity may win it a place of its own in the never-too-full shelf of desert island books. The interest of the Bell saga lies in its grim realism, from the day Thomas Bell landed with his family on Sunday Island's surf-swept shore to his embittered departure thirty-five years later." - from the Author's Note.
