DEFOE, D.: Robinson Crusoe retold for younger listeners by Roy McMillan (Abridged)

When his ship is wrecked in a storm, Robinson Crusoe finds himself stranded on a desert island with no one to help him and no chance of rescue. Scared and alone, he tries to make a life for himself: building shelters, hunting food, taming animals, crafting boats and making clothes. But just as his life appears to be settled, he sees someone else’s footprint on the beach and a different struggle for survival begins, this time against cannibals and pirates.

Roy McMillan combines an abridged version of Defoe’s novel with his own helpful explanations to retell the story for younger listeners.
