PROGRAM INFORMATION

More information

Exceptionally popular since its publication in 1719, Robinson Crusoe is widely regarded as the first English novel. Our eponymous hero finds himself shipwrecked on an African desert island after a tumultuous storm, and following the realization he is the only survivor, is faced with the prospect of years of isolation. However, he throws his energy into familiarizing himself with his new habit: he hunts, learns how to make pottery and even adopts a parrot. After encountering a group of cannibals, Robinson Crusoe finally finds a companion. A thrilling adventure for younger listeners, made thoroughly accessible through Roy McMillan’s retelling of Defoe’s text, simplifying and clarifying them at certain points.
