|Running away to sea to escape a legal career, Robinson Crusoe ends up having rather more excitement than he bargained for in this infamous adventure yarn by Daniel Defoe. After working as a successful merchant and then a plantation owner, Crusoe is lured to sea again as part of a slave-gathering expedition only to find himself shipwrecked off the coast of Trinidad in his third and most famous role-the original castaway. Salvaging what he can from his wreck, Crusoe establishes an existence on the island, adopting a pet parrot and goat and saving a man named Friday from cannibals. When he eventually seizes a ship from mutineers and sails back to England, he find that things have changed in the three decades that he's been away . . . Published in 1719, Robinson Crusoe is the first English example of realistic fiction. It was a popular innovation, being reprinted four times in its first year and going on to have a huge influence on writers as diverse as Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Beatrix Potter. Unusually, this edition also includes The Further Adventures of Robinson Crusoe , where the action returns to the island and other exotic locations including Madagascar, Cambodia, and Siberia. There is also a map showing the location of Robinson Crusoe Island and Crusoe's onward journey.|
