First published in 1719, Robinson Crusoe is the story of an adventurous young man who ignores the sound and sensible advice of his father and sets off to see the world. However, Crusoe's ship founders in a storm, and he is the only survivor. Washed ashore on a desert island, he is faced with the challenge of providing food and shelter for himself, and is forced to invent afresh many things that he had previously taken for granted. Long years of hardship and struggle follow, but eventually Crusoe becomes contented with his lot, proud of the kingdom that he has created for himself. Then, one day, he discovers that he is not alone on the island.More
"Martin Shaw convincingly recounts this story which, above all, describes the strength the human spirit can muster under desperate circumstances." (Sunday Times)
