Summary

Robinson Crusoe is perhaps a book in need of no introduction. Widely held as the first novel in English, Robinson Crusoe tells the story of a castaway and his adventures while he was stranded on an island for 28 years. First published in 1719, it has never gone out of print. This particular version has slightly updated some of the English, making it easier to read. A veritable literary classic, Robinson Crusoe has entertained readers of all ages for hundreds of years. If you haven't read this wonderful work before, now is the time!
