This special collection brings together Daniel Defoe’s two adventure-filled novels about the now famous character, Robinson Crusoe, and Peter Longueville’s castaway story, The English Hermit. In The Life and Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, the titular character finds himself the sole survivor of a shipwreck and is marooned on an island, along with an escaped prisoner he names “Friday,” for twenty-seven years. After dangerous encounters, the pair is rescued and returns home to England. But Crusoe cannot forget the island where he spent most of his life, and vows to return in The Farther Adventures of Robinson Crusoe. In The English Hermit, while searching for fresh food on a seemingly uninhabited island, Edward Dorrington and his crew stumble upon a meticulously crafted village.
