The True and Strange Adventures of the Real Robinson CrusoeeBook - 2014
Winner of the 2001 Whitbread Biography Award: Diana Souhami's gripping true story of the man and the island that inspired Robinson Crusoe. This action-filled biography follows Alexander Selkirk, an eighteenth-century Scottish buccaneer who sailed the South Seas plundering for gold. But an ill-fated expedition in 1703 led to shipwreck on remote Juan Fernaandez Island off the coast of Chile. Selkirk, the ship's master, was accused of inciting mutiny and abandoned on the uninhabited island with nothing but his clothing, his pistol, a knife, and a Bible.
