The Life And Strange Surprizing Adventures Of Robinson Crusoe Of York, Mariner
Who Lived Eight And Twenty Years, All Alone In An Un-inhabited Island On The Coast Of America, Near The Mouth Of The Great River Of Oroonoque, Having Been Cast On Shore By Shipwreck, Wherein All The Men Perished But Himself With An Account How He Was At Last As Strangely Deliver'd By Pyrates, Written By HimselfeBook - 1998
The solitary survivor on a deserted island, Robinson Crusoe gradually creates a life for himself, building a house and cultivating the land, and making a companion of the native whose life he saves. Daniel Defoe's enthralling story-telling and imaginatively detailed descriptions have ensuredthat his fiction masquerading as fact remains one of the most famous stories in English literature. On one level a simple adventure story, the novel also raises profound questions about moral and spiritual values, society, and man's abiding acquisitiveness.
