This picture actually reminded me of the buried treasure that was hidden in a cave up in the mountains. People would use canoes to avoid detection by the rival groups who have the same goal.
I’d like to think of this picture to come in line with the Swiss Family Robinson; where the entire family had survived a shipwreck and further got stranded on an island to fend off on their own. I read it back in the fourth grade when we read an excerpt for English Class. It’s a good book, I’d definitely recommend it to anyone who’s interested in adventure stories.
