Robinson Crusoe is a famous story of shipwreck and survival, written by Daniel Defoe and first published in 1719. The book is a fictional autobiography of the title character-a castaway who spends 28 years on a remote tropical island, encountering Native Americans, captives and mutineers before being rescued. The novel can be divided into three parts: Robinson's youth and the time up to his shipwreck; his twenty-eight years on an uninhabited island; and his life and adventures after being rescued from the island. The story starts in the 17th century in England, moving on to North Africa, Brazil, an island off the coast of Venezuela and finally returning to Europe. In the first part of the novel, Robinson pursues his livelihood by going to sea. After a few false starts, he has some success but a third voyage ends in slavery. He eventually escapes and is helped to Brazil where he becomes a successful plantation owner. He embarks on a slave gathering expedition to West Africa but is shipwrecked off the coast of Venezuela in a terrible storm. The majority of the novel deals with Robinson's life on the island-how he accomplishes his survival and even establishes his "kingdom"; how he moves from a state of discontent to one of resignation and contentment; how he meets his companion Friday (named after the day of the week he appeared) and, finally, how he leaves the island. This publication of Robinson Crusoe is part of the Qualitas Classics Fireside Series, where pure, ageless classics are presented in clean, easy to read reprints.

From the Publisher:

Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.

From the Back Cover:

Thought to have been inspired by the true-life experiences of a marooned sailor, Robinson Crusoe tells the story of the sole survivor of a shipwreck, stranded on a Caribbean island, who prevails against all odds, enduring three decades of solitude while mastering both himself and his strange new world. First published in 1719, the novel has long been one of the English language's great adventure stories.
In the journal he shares with us, the endearing, goatskin-clad castaway recounts the details of his lonely existence and his many adventures, including a fierce battle with cannibals and a daring rescue of Friday, the man who becomes his trusted servant and companion. Defoe's brilliant and imaginative use of detail renders Crusoe's island world utterly convincing. In reclaiming his humanity from the savagery of his circumstances, the hero humbly acquires the qualities of courage, patience, ingenuity, and industry.
