Written by Daniel Defoe, Robinson Crusoe is based on the true experiences of Alexander Selkirk who had run away to sea in 1704. Like Robinson Crusoe, Selkirk lived on an uninhabited island for five years before he was rescued.
In this classic, Crusoe is a young man who loves to embark on sea voyages and in the course of these voyages, he finds himself in many lands and meets different people including cannibals. On one such voyage, Crusoe finds himself on a deserted island where he rescues and befriends a cannibal and names him Friday. On the island, he also builds a house, a boat and a new life for himself.
