Robinson Crusoe

$9.95

In stock

Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe, published in 1719, was thought by its first readers to be a true story. It was in fact inspired by the adventures of a real-life castaway. Defoe tells the story of the sole survivor of a shipwreck, his ingenuity, and his encounter with the man he calls Friday. The story of a man living completely alone for years holds a renewed fascination for modern-day readers in an increasingly interconnected world. Abridged for young readers, the Core Classics® edition is faithful to the style, plot, and themes of the original work.

A discount applies to the purchase of 25 or more Core Classics® books (any titles).
