The Robinson family decides that they have to leave the hot, unsheltered bare rock where they have been encamped. Mrs. Robinson in particular finds the heat of this rock objectionable, and Mr. Robinson agrees to look for a new place for a home. The boys begin to look forward to their move and refer to it as a trip to the "Promised Land," an allusion to the Bible and to the land of Canaan, which God promised to give to the descendants of Abraham. The idea is that the Robinson family's new home will be far more comfortable and will be in the part of the island that is more shaded and covered with trees. Just as the Promised Land in the Bible has access to water, including the Euphrates River, the Promised Land where the Robinson family will live has access to shade and is across a stream.
