Librarian's Pick of the Week: Robinson's Crusoe

Title: Robinson Crusoe
Author: Daniel Defoe
Genre: Classic, Adventure
Published: 1719
Age: 12+

We're going old school this week!

Synopsis: "The solitary survivor on a deserted island, Robinson Crusoe gradually creates a life for himself, building a house and cultivating the land, and making a companion of the native whose life he saves. Daniel Defoe's enthralling story-telling and imaginatively detailed descriptions have ensured that his fiction masquerading as fact remains one of the most famous stories in English literature. On one level a simple adventure story, the novel also raises profound questions about moral and spiritual values, society, and man's abiding acquisitiveness."
