Lord of the Flies – Problems Arise

If you did not start at the beginning please go back to the introduction.

Problems Arise

Problems arise quickly in the new environment.  As the boys busily collect materials for a fire and a structure they hear the sound of a helicopter.  Too late they realize it has passed overhead without seeing them.  Worse, they realize Piggy has abandoned his lookout post.
