Shipwrecked off the coast of Trinidad, Robinson Crusoe – a young man with a thirst for adventure – finds himself washed up on a remote tropical island with nothing but a few tools and animals for company. Cast away for thirty years, he must battle cannibals, mutineers and the elements in a tale so convincing that many readers at the time believed it to be non-fiction.
A true page-turner, Robinson Crusoe is one of the most enduring novels in the English language and its unique blend of extraordinary realism and brilliant drama continues to delight readers the world over.
