The Swiss Family Robinson Johann Wyss

Paperback

Author: Wyss, Johann David
ISBN: 9780440415947 Publisher: Random House Childrens Books

ÒFor many days we had been tempest-tossedÉthe raging storm increased in fury until on the seventh day all hope was lost.Ó

From these dire opening lines, a timeless story of adventure begins. One family will emerge alive from this terrible storm: the RobinsonsÑa Swiss pastor, his wife, and four sons, plus two dogs and a shipload of livestock. Inspired by Daniel DefoeÕs Robinson Crusoe, this heartwarming tale portrays a familyÕs struggle to create a new life on a strange and fantastic tropical island. There each boy must learn to utilize his own unique nature as their adventures lead to difficult challenges and amazing discoveries, including a puzzling message tied to an albatrossÕs leg. But it is in the ingenuity and authenticity of the family itself, and the natural wonders of this exotic land that have made The Swiss Family Robinson, first published at the beginning of the nineteenth century, one of the most enduring and imitated stories of shipwreck and survival.
