Caught in the howling turmoil of hurricane and tidal wave, a young gentleman merchant named Robinson Crusoe was flung onto the shore of a deserted tropical island. His ship--destroyed. His crew--dead. His location--unknown. The only human across the ocean--were savage cannibal tribes.

Crusoe was without food, without shelter, without supplies--and had never trained to live apart from the luxuries of civilization. But somehow, using only wreckage and his wit, Robison Crusoe would have to learn to survive. Without help. Without hope of rescue.
