The sole survivor of a shipwreck, Robinson Crusoe endures twenty-seven years of solitude and deprivation on a remote Caribbean island, his only companion an escaped prisoner who he names "Friday." Together, Crusoe and Friday encounter cannibals, captives and mutineers, before being rescued by pirates and returning home.
Written by Daniel Defoe in 1719, The Life and Adventures of Robinson Crusoe is thought to be inspired by the true story of Scottish sailor Alexander Selkirk, who was rescued after being stranded on a deserted island for four years. Robinson Crusoe is often credited as marking the beginning of the realistic fiction genre, and has become one of the most widely published books in history.
