The Swiss Family Robinson

The Swiss Family Robinson

by Johann David Wyss

A terrible storm strands a Swiss pastor and his family on a tropical island. Luckily, the Robinsons are optimistic and inventive; with what they salvage from the wrecked ship, and the island's abundant fruits, plants, and animals, they soon adapt, each day discovering new dangers, skills, and delights in their strange new life.
