One of the world’s best-loved stories of survival and determination, The Swiss Family Robinson is shipwrecked on a tropical island which they must endure with fortitude and common sense. The family consists of a pastor, his wife, four young sons, two dogs and together they must rely on their wits to adapt to the new world, one which seems terrifying at first but more forgiving when the whole family learns and works together. Inspired by Defoe's Robinson Crusoe the classic adventure is still as popular and powerful today as it was when first published in the early 1800s.
