Originally written to entertain his four young sons, Johann David Wyss based andlt;iandgt;The Swiss Family Robinsonandlt;/iandgt; on Daniel Defoe's classic shipwreck story, andlt;iandgt;Robinson Crusoeandlt;/iandgt; (1719). Upon its initial publication in 1812, andlt;iandgt;The Swiss Family Robinsonandlt;/iandgt; was received with great enthusiasm not only as a first-rate adventure story, but also as a practical guide to self-sufficiency.

After their ship founders at sea, members of the Robinson family find themselves stranded in an uninhabited, idyllic land. This edition includes a Reading Group guide and a Foreword by the Newbery Honor-winning author of "Shabanu, Daughter of the Wind."
