In his own words, Robinson Crusoe tells of the terrible storm that drowned all his shipmates and left him marooned on a deserted island. Forced to overcome despair, doubt, and self-pity, he struggles to create a life for himself in the wilderness. From practically thing, Crusoe painstakingly learns how to make pottery, grow crops, domesticate livestock, and build a house.
