But, with echoes of his old adventures sounding in his head, Crusoe feels drawn back to his island, and when his nephew offers to take him on board his trading vessel, Crusoe cannot refuse the opportunity to return to the seas. Unknown to him, even greater adventures lie ahead on this fateful voyage, as Crusoe voyages to exotic locales in Africa, Southeast Asia, China, and Siberia.
