HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. 'It happen'd one Day about Noon going towards my Boat, I was exceedingly surpriz'd with the Print of a Man's naked Foot on the Shore.' Shipwrecked in a storm at sea, Robinson Crusoe is washed up on a remote and desolate island. As he struggles to piece together a life for himself, Crusoe's physical, moral and spiritual values are tested to the limit. For 24 years he remains in solitude and learns to tame and master the island, until he finally comes across another human being. Considered a classic literary masterpiece, and frequently interpreted as a comment on the British Imperialist approach at the time, Defoe's fable was and still is revered as the very first English novel.

Great & fantastic book

Robinson Crusoe is my all time favorite book. 1st started to read when I was 13 years old when we as a secondary student need to learn about short story. I have read it over and over again. I'm never get boring with it. It had become my dictionary for the words that I don't understand the meaning.
I will pass it down to my child so that they also can have a good time to read this fantastic book. Such a great fantastic book.
