The Swiss Family Robinson

£14.99

Product description

A book following a fictional family who get shipwrecked and abandoned in the ensuing evacuation. Left alone, they must carry what little they can on a raft to a nearby semi-tropical island, colonise it and survive.

Stranded in the middle of nowhere, the family must use their individual talents to survive not just the night, but for the foreseeable future. Bear in mind the story was written in the early 1800's

The book is in very condition for being a century old. There is some minor damage to the dust jacket, but aside from that has managed to survive with only
