Robinson Crusoe's Synopsis

Robinson Crusoe is about an English young man who goes to sea without his parent’s blessing. He has many adventures on both land and sea, and learns many new things like trading, navigation, mathematics and farming. A storm at sea leaves him shipwrecked and alone on a deserted island. For the next 28 years, he learns survival skill and by sheer ingenuity and common sense, creates a fairly comfortable and secure life for himself. In the process, he learn carpentry, pottery, hunting, boat- building, butter and cheese production and how to make his own clothes from animal hide. One day, he saves Friday, the victim of a cannibal assault and thereafter wins him as a friend for live. They rescue a Spaniard and Friday’s father from cannibal and save and English captain from mutineers. After 28 long and desolate years, Robinson Crusoe returns to England. He marries, has three children and after his wife’s death, goes sea-faring again, visiting the island now inhabited by the Spanish and English. He also sail to Brazil.
