Shipwrecked on an uncharted island, the Swiss Family Robinson—mother, father, and four young boys—make the most of their predicament, adapting to the island and turning the absence of civilization to their advantage. Through perseverance, hard work, and self-reliance, they become masters of their new environment. Their experience is colorful, creative, and filled with exciting adventures. This edition is illustrated with color plates by T.H. Robinson.
