Lieutenant R. H. Jayne is the non de plume of Edward S. Ellis, who wrote a great number of books under different names (Wikipedia). This book involves six people - four sailors, the captain, a young boy, and the boy's uncle - all on the schooner Mary Ann. The schooner was attacked by a whale while in the Pacific off the shore of Mexico; the whale tore the ship to pieces and all ended up alive, in the water. Not terribly far from shore and all good swimmers, they fought their way with a life boat. The whale seemed intent on injuring them and came up under the boat, lifted them out of the water and smashed it with his huge tail. Two sailors didn't survive but the rest worked their way to shore. Once on the coast, they had to fight their way through the jungle and at one point were accosted by thieves. In the wilderness they came upon lions and were treed. They explored the island it turned up that they were on, and had many adventures but because the boy was a boy scout he knew what to do when separated from his father and uncle.
