For more than 270 years, readers everywhere have been fascinated by the young fool who ran away from wealth, security, and family for a rough life at sea—and came to his senses too late, alone on a tropical island. Alone except for cannibals, that is, and God.
Robinson Crusoe's adventure takes place on a remote island. Adjusting to the primitive conditions, he learns to make tools, shelters, bread, and clothes. More importantly, he becomes a Christian.
Modern editions tend to leave out Crusoe's long struggle with God and his change as he studies God's Word. As part of the Classics for Young Readers Series, Kathryn Lindskoog faithfully preserves such details.
Edited for younger readers.
