The novel ROBINSON CRUSOE, by author Daniel Defoe, was printed in April, 1719.
The book is a fictional biography.
Crusoe survived a shipwreck. After being stranded, he lived as a castaway alone on an uninhabited Island for 28 years. While stranded, he encountered Native Americans, captives, and mutineers. After he rescued an enslaved man, he named him after that day of the week. When mutineers bring an English ship to the Island, Crusoe helps the captain and the faithful men of his crew to retake the ship. Then he leaves the Island with them.
The Second novel, The FARTHER ADVENTURES Of ROBINSON CRUSOE, by Defoe, begins after Crusoe’s marriage in England. When he is restless and wants to return to the Island, faith plays a hand in his future adventures.
