Synopses & Reviews
For more than 270 years, readers of all ages everywhere have been fascinated by the story of a young fool who ran away from wealth, security, and family for a rough life at sea -- and came to his senses too late, alone on a tropical island. Alone, except for cannibals, and God.
Robinson Crusoe's adventure takes place on an island near the Orinoco River of Venezuela. Adjusting to the primitive conditions, he learns to make tools, shelters, bread, clothes, baskets, and canoes. More importantly, he becomes a Christian.
Modern editions often leave out Crusoe's long struggle with God and his slow transformation as he studies and applies God's Word. As part of P&R's Classics for Young Readers Series, Kathryn Lindskoog has edited Robinson Crusoe for today's reader, faithfully preserving every detail of the original story. Full-page illustrations are featured to add to your reading pleasure.
