About This Item
In September 1659, Robinson Crusoe's ship sinks and he miraculously survives on a deserted island. Robinson Crusoe is among the first novels written in English and a true page-turner. Thanks to its extraordinary realism and drama, it is easily the longest-enduring work of popular fiction in the language. The story, probably based on the Pacific-island ordeal of castaway Alexander Selkirk, was presented by Daniel Defoe as a true account, and is utterly convincing in its topography, action, and character, even three hundred years after its first publication.
First published in 1719, Daniel Defoe created an amazing tale of Robinson Crusoe, a man leftto fend for himself after a terrible storm at sea. Lost on an island alone, he has only a knife, some tobacco, and a pipe...and plenty of time to learn how to survive.
