Less that two years after the publication of William Golding’s adaptation of the accounts of the boys who survived the crash of their aircraft, the survivors of the second flight of evacuees - who were girls and had been presumed lost at sea, were discovered in 1963. This second group had succeeded in establishing a thriving community in which they flourished. Their discovery, subsequent to their having disabled the nuclear device set up on a nearby island, inspired world wide public adulation that was to lead to global ban on nuclear weapons and many other sweeping social reforms. This book, edited by the grandmother of one of the survivors of the second flight, is a compilation of historic articles, diaries, speeches, broadcast transcripts and official reports in order to provide a definitive factual reference to these events which went on to change the course of world history.
