Publisher's Summary

One of the world's best-loved stories of shipwreck and survival, The Swiss Family Robinson portrays a family's struggle to create a new life for themselves on a strange and fantastic tropical island. Blown off course by a raging storm, the family - a Swiss pastor, his wife, their four young sons, plus two dogs and a shipload of livestock - must rely on one another in order to adapt to their needs the natural wonders of their exotic new home.

Inspired by Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, this classic story of invention and adventure has fired the imaginations of readers since it first appeared in 1812.

Swiss family robinson

I listened to this book on a long drive with my kids.
It is a wonderful story with lots of points of discussion.
But it would have been a bit boring for the kids if I wasn't listening too to chat about what was happening.
You have got to get used to the long winded way of telling the story and out of date psychology.

Still, it's worth a listen.
