Robinson Crusoe

Courier Corporation, 01.01.1995 - 73 Seiten
One of the great adventure novels in English literature, 'Robinson Crusoe' is the remarkable story of a man shipwrecked and marooned on an uninhabited for 24 days. This newly condensed version retains all the excitement and vivid detail of the original as it recounts Crusoe's efforts to survive as a castaway - his struggle to build a shelter , his attempts to grow crops and tame wild animals, his dramatic encounter with Friday - a native he saves from beeing cannibalized by other savages - and the pair's eventual escape and return to civilization. Defoe was a journalist with an eye for detail and a simple, descriptive style that would be the model for realistic adventure stories for generations to come. He put his skills to excellent use in this book.
