The Life and Adventures of Robinson Crusoe relates the story of a man's shipwreck on a desert island and his subsequent adventures. Epistolary, confessional, and didactic in form, the book is presented as an autobiography of the title character -a castaway who spends thirty years on a remote tropical island near Trinidad, encountering cannibals, captives, and mutineers, before ultimately being rescued. The story has been perceived to be based on the life of Alexander Selkirk, a Scottish castaway who lived for four years on a Pacific island called "Más a Tierra," now part of Chile, which was renamed Robinson Crusoe Island in 1966. The Further Adventures of Robinson Crusoe describes how Crusoe settled in Bedford, married and produced a family, and that when his wife died, he went off on further adventures. Crusoe first returns to his island, and after that, circumstances take him off to Madagascar, then to Southeast Asia and China, and finally to Siberia. The story is speculated to be partially based on Moscow embassy secretary Adam Brand's journal detailing the embassy's journey from Moscow to Peking from 1693 to 1695. Serious Reflections of Robinson Crusoe is a collection of essays on spiritual and ethical subjects, written supposedly by Robinson Crusoe in his old years as he contemplates on the story of his life. Though sometimes noticeably dreary, it is quite interesting at some points, as it reveals some Defoe's ideas about morality and religion. Daniel Defoe (1660-1731), was an English writer, journalist, and spy, most famous for his novel Robinson Crusoe. Defoe is noted for being one of the earliest proponents of the novel, and he is considered one of the founders of the English novel.

Running away to sea to escape a legal career, Robinson Crusoe ends up having rather more excitement than he'd bargained for in this infamous adventure yarn by Daniel Defoe. Only just surviving his first storm at sea, Crusoe goes on to become a successful merchant, until he's seized by pirates on his second voyage. He manages to escape and reinvents himself once more in his second career as a plantation owner. Lured to sea again as part of a slave-gathering expedition, Crusoe finds himself shipwrecked off the coast of Trinidad and in his third and most famous role - the original castaway. Crusoe salvages what he can from his wreck and establishes an existence on the island, as well as fitting in a religious conversion, adopting a pet parrot and goat, saving Friday from cannibals, seizing a ship from its mutineers and sails her back to England, to find that things have changed in the 3 decades that he's been away... Published in 1719, although many early readers initially assumed that Robinson Crusoe was a factual autobiography of a real man named Crusoe, the book was actually the first example of realistic fiction. It was a popular innovation, being reprinted four times in its first year, and going on to have a huge influence on writers as diverse as Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Beatrix Potter, and has been adapted many times for stage and screen. Unusually, this edition also includes The Further Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, where the action returns to the island and other exotic locations including Madagascar, Cambodia and Siberia. The original map of the island from the 1719 edition is included, plus a new map showing Crusoe's route, as well as a Foreword by Ray Mears.
