Caught in a raging storm at sea, William and Elizabeth Robinson, along with their four children, are stranded on the wrecked ship when all the Sailors evacuate leaving the family behind. Yet the sense of our Lonely and forsaken condition weighed heavily upon me as I returned to my Family, constraining myself to say with a smile, “courage, dear ones! Although our good ship will never sail more, she is so placed that our cabin will remain above water, and tomorrow, if the wind and Waves abate, I see no reason why we should not be able to get ashore.” salvaging whatever they can from the wreck, as the family finds their way to a deserted tropical island, how will they overcome the adversities and survive? A classic tale of adventure, Johann David Wyss’ the Swiss family Robinson has been entertaining generations of readers. This translation by William H. Br>g Kingston continues to remain one of the best-loved English versions.
