Description: Vivid eighteenth century tales of sailors washed ashore from shipwrecks, buccaneers on the run, white slaves escaping from pirates, and mutineers fleeing tyrannical captains — these were the mix from which Defoe conjured his classic book 'The Life and Strange Surprising Adventures of Robinson Crusoe'.
But could any man have survived what Crusoe endured?
The explorer and writer Tim Severin was determined to find out.
Beginning on the coast of Chile, then traveling to Nicaragua, Pananama and the Caribbean islands of Venezuela, Severin travels to the sites of these amazing survival stories, camping on islands and visiting jungles to put to the test the adventures and survival strategies of Crusoe and his companion Man Friday.
In the process he debunks the widely-held belief that Alexander Selkirk, a castaway who piqued early eighteenth century popular interest, was Defoe’s model.
Insightful travel writing, riveting narrative history and clever scholarly discoveries make this a remarkably rich and varied book. Tim Severin has once again demonstrated his superb ability to bring together literature and adventure in an engrossing tale.
