Before survivalism was "in" Robinson Crusoe was already on the shelves. A story of survival, humanity and sheer will is the classic of the man vs. world novel. There's action, adventure and humility wrapped into one book.

Really good. I read it because it was on a list I'm reading. I was very surprised to love reading it. I learned a lot along the way, especially attitudes about slavery and religion.

This delightful rewrite of the classic story makes the marvelous tale of Robinson Crusoe more understandable for today's children. Anne De Graaf does a brilliant job of preserving the original story, and my children and I have enjoyed reading this book together.

A storm at sea lands a lone survivor on a deserted island
The Adventures of Robinson Crusoe is the timeless story of one man's adventures in his battles against loneliness, savages and nature.

The Story springs to life as the reader enters the adventures in one of the most exciting tales ever written.

The story is thematically similar to Tom Hank's "Castaway" movie. The ordeal of Robinson Crusoe, however, spans over 25 years and is fraught with adventures and peril Old Tom would not ever have thought of. A classic tale of truly one of the immortal figures of literature.
