Nation (Audio) by Terry Pratchett

Terry Pratchett spins out a tale of an English ship that is stranded on an island of the Sandwich Islands after a huge tsunnami. The boy Mao and daughter of the King must work to save the others who flee the ravages of the storm to the big island. Mr. Pratchett explores science verses religion. Mao says, "It will not happen!" Which shows his determination. The book falls more on the science and less on the religion side.
