Experience the thrilling castaway novel which spawned hundreds of imitators but has yet to be equaled. Against the wishes of his parents, Robinson Crusoe forsakes his mundane life to seek adventure on the high seas - and gets more than he ever bargained for. After experiences of shipwreck and captivity he finds himself marooned on a tropical South American island with little more than his wits to live on. As he struggles for physical survival he also experiences profound internal challenges, eventually coming to a better sense of himself and the world around him. A fugitive from local cannibals provides some welcome companionship, but Crusoe continues to hope for rescue. Will he ever manage to escape his island home? First published in 1719, Robinson Crusoe has been translated into many languages, becoming one of the most widely read books in the world.
