it was amazing

A real classic. A boy leaves his village on a Pacific atoll to prove himself. He crashes on a deserted island, lives off the land, finds his courage, and is chased by headhunters on his way back home. A bit old-school (1940), so worth mentioning some of the dated language around race when recommending to students.
