Summary

When mariner Robinson Crusoe sails from London to the African coast to Brazil, his unpredictable voyage takes a catastrophic course. The lone survivor of a shipwreck, he washes ashore on an Atlantic island. Resourceful and determined to contend with providence and nature, he finds his sovereignty empowering. Through the years he builds a civilization as a solitary man. Then he discovers a stranger’s footprint in the sand.

A pioneering work of literary realism, Daniel Defoe’s epic has left an inestimable legacy. Arguably the first English novel and the archetype of the survivalist genre, Robinson Crusoe has become a symbol of self-reliance and individualism.

Revised edition: Previously published as Robinson Crusoe, this edition of Robinson Crusoe (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

returned book due to possible edit to narration

I like the narrator. I was excited about the book... however it seemed like the narrator never took a breath. o found it difficult to follow. the narrator was also fairly monotoned and not "acting". I hink it was edited, but could be a bad rendition.
