Michael Maloney reads Daniel Defoe's timeless tale of a man who has to use all his own skills to survive alone on an island. Robinson Crusoe has a great desire to see the world and, against his father's wishes, goes to sea. After surviving a terrible shipwreck, however, Robinson Crusoe discovers he is the only person on a deserted island, far from any shipping routes or rescue. Using tools salvaged from the ship and with only the ship's dog and cats for company, Crusoe builds a dwelling and a search reveals a plentiful supply of food. For nearly twenty-three years he lives without any human company - until one Friday, when he discovers he is not alone... The Adventures of Robinson Crusoe is a classic tale of adventure and survival.
