Baker & Taylor
On a desolate tropical island, a shipwrecked British seaman tries to master his hostile environment and remain civilized.

Blackwell North Amer
Robinson Crusoe's seafaring adventures are abruptly ended when he is shipwrecked, the solitary survivor on a deserted island. He gradually creates a life for himself, building a house and cultivating the land, and making a companion from the native whose life he saves.
Daniel Defoe's story-telling and detailed descriptions have ensured that his fiction masquerading as fact remains one of the most famous stories in English literature. On one level a simple adventure tale, the novel also raises questions about moral and spiritual values, society, and man's abiding acquisitiveness. This new edition includes an introduction and notes that illuminate the historical context.

On one level a simple adventure story, the novel also raises profound questions about moral and spiritual values, society, and man's abiding acquisitiveness. This new edition includes a scintillating Introduction and notes that illuminate the historical context.
