About the Book

H. de Vere Stacpoole's romance book The Blue Lagoon was first released by T. Fisher Unwin in 1908. The Garden of God (1923) and The Gates of Morning (1924) are the other two books in the Blue Lagoon trilogy; this book is the first in (1925). The 1980 film The Blue Lagoon with Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins was the most notable of the novel's many cinematic adaptations. Dick and Emmeline Lestrange, two cousins, and a galley cook are the main characters of the tale. They are marooned on an island in the South Pacific as a result of a disaster. Paddy Button, the galley cook, takes charge of the kids and teaches them how to survive while warning them to stay away from "Arita" berries, which he refers to as "the never-wake-up berries." In the meantime, Dick, Emmeline, and Hannah row their lifeboat to the location where they grew up with Paddy. While Dicky cuts bananas on the shore, Emmeline breaks a branch off the poisonous arita plant. Emmeline doesn't notice Hannah's tossing one of the oars into the water when she's in the boat with her son. Emmeline and Hannah are stuck on the boat as it is swept into the lagoon by the incoming tide.

About Author

H. De Vere Stacpoole

Irish author H. de Vere Stacpoole lived from 9 April 1863 to 12 April 1951. The Blue Lagoon, a romance book published in 1908, is his best-known work and has been made into a number of motion pictures. He was the final son of the Reverend William Church Stacpoole, a theologian and the headmaster of Kingstown School, and Charlotte Augusta. He was born on April 9, 1863, in Kingstown, now known as Dun Laoghaire, in Taney, close to Dublin. He had three older sisters, the oldest of them, Florence Stacpoole, who was a health and medicine author. Henry credited his mother, who was of Irish descent but had grown up in the wildest and most forested areas of Canada up to the age of twelve before deciding to become a widow and move back to Ireland, with having a significant influence on his love of nature, which had defined his entire life. When Reverend William passed away too soon in 1870, the mother was left to raise her four kids by herself. The family relocated for an extended period to Nice in the south of France in the winter of 1871 due to lung issues that were incorrectly diagnosed.
