This was one of the first books I can remember reading when I was younger, and though I think it is a book many have heard of I figured that some of the younger people out there might not have read it.

When it was first published nearly 300 years ago, people believed that it was a true story, and since then has had over 700 Editions.

It is the story of a man shipwrecked for nearly 30 years on a desert island, and his trials and adventures until pirates rescue him.


“I have noticed even people who claim everything is predestined, and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road.” Stephen Hawking.
