Inspired by the real-life experience of Alexander Selkirk (1676–1721), a Scottish sailor who was marooned for more than four years on a South Pacific island, Robinson Crusoe gave enduring form to fundamental themes of the Western imagination. With his parrot and parasol, the castaway Crusoe is an emblem of survival, self-sufficiency, resourcefulness, and the ingenuity that shapes civilization from the raw materials of nature. He is also the hero of what many literary historians call the first novel in English.

Though this isn't really my favorite genre, this book has a number of things going for it.
