"Have you ever imagined what it would be like if you, and your whole family, were to be shipwrecked and cast upon an uninhabited island? If you have then here is a very famous book about just that.
Supposed to have been written by the head of the Robinson family it describes how the castaways managed to salvage a great deal from the wrecked ship and finally to make a new home - a real home - far, far from their old one. It is all very exciting as the castaways rescue domestic animals, discover delicious new fruits and vegetables, go exploring, bathe, fish, bake their own bread in a home made bake-house and finally build a real farm."
