Let's take a new look at...

               Including the virtually unknown Volume Three.

A great book just became even more intriguing! We went digging into the mystery-shrouded background of "The Life and Surprising Adventures of Robinson Crusoe," and discovered some amazing things!

First of all, there are three volumes, not just one! And they are all part of the original story. Now you can thrill to the story once again, and see how the marooned Robinson Crusoe rose above his intense loneliness and impossible circumstances.

In "The Real Robinson Crusoe--All Three Original Volumes," we share with you also the strange and surprising "behind-the-scenes" story of Daniel Defoe's widely loved tale (Click on "Fresh Discoveries"), and how the story really grew out of the amazing real-life experiences of the author.

In this book, the "brightest jewels" of the Robinson Crusoe story have here been restored-for the first time in almost 300 years! Since Daniel Defoe's captivating tale has been pirated and mutilated over the years, probably more than any other book, we have gone back to the original manuscripts to get at the real story.

Incorporating Vol. II and Vol. III, this new book in readable condensed form tells the whole story as originally intended: Robinson Crusoe's captivating adventures on an uninhabited island, his later world-wide escapades (Vol. II) and his reflections after 28 years on a lonely island (Vol. III) (Click on "My Thoughts.")

We have added two features, "The Life that Gave Us Robinson Crusoe," and the story-behind-the-story of the real island that forms the backdrop for this amazing tale. Based on many years of careful research, this has all been expressed in modern English by long-time Robinson Crusoe enthusiast, Kenneth McVety.

The original of this book was penned by Daniel Defoe in 1719-20. To add life and color to the pages, we bring you throughout this web site the outstanding artwork of Milo Winter (c. 1914).
