synopsis (Robinson Crusoe)

Robinson Crusoe is about a young Englishman who goes to sea without his parents’ 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 skills, and by sheer ingenuity and common sense, creates a fairly comfortable and secure life for himself. In the process, he learns 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 life. They rescue as Spaniard and Friday’s father from cannibals and save an English captain from mutineer’s. After 28 long and desolate years, Robinson Crusoe return yo England. He married and has three children and after his wife’s death, goes sea-faring again, visiting island now inhabited by the Spanish and English. He also sail to Brazil.
