Summary

Running away to sea brings adventure and wealth, but then come shipwreck and a desperate struggle for survival.

Defying his parents, Robinson Crusoe goes to sea. He is captured by pirates but escapes to Brazil. He makes a fortune using slave labour to grow tobacco and sugar. He sails to Africa to bring back more slaves but is shipwrecked on an uninhabited island.

Everyone else is drowned. For more than twenty years, he lives alone. He learns to hunt and fish and make shelter. Then the cannibals arrive. Will this be the end of his adventure--or a chance to escape?
