The Swiss Family Robinson

Wyss, Johann David

While travelling from Switzerland to Australia, William, Elizabeth and their four sons, Fritz, Ernest, Jack and Franz, are caught in a terrible storm.

Shipwrecked on a desert island, they are left to fend for themselves, equipped with supplies salvaged from the wreckage and surrounded by an array of animals. Every day brings new challenges to overcome, and the family must use their wits to survive.

This classic castaway adventure celebrates the values of self-reliance, resourcefulness and cooperation, and has been a cornerstone of its genre since it was published over two hundred years ago.
