Swiss Family Robinson (Om Illustrated Classics) Description

Discover an adventure that never grows old! The Swiss Family Robinson, by Johann David Wyss, is about the Robinson family—father, mother, and four young sons—who get shipwrecked on their way from Switzerland to New Guinea. Before long, the family is on shore and exploring a deserted island full of exotic animals, charming locations, and hidden dangers.

Cut off from the comforts and companionship of other humans, they use their familiarity with natural history to find the resources and build the tools to construct a canoe, weave cloth, irrigate a garden, turn an immense hollow tree into a lofty house and establish a winter dwelling in a cave. They tame and ride donkeys and a buffalo. They raise chickens, angora rabbits, and a whole variety of livestock. Soon they become masters of their new environment, rising to its many challenges and using their ingenuity to avail themselves of its abundant resources.

This adventurous tale of survival demonstrates how one can overcome odds through sheer grit and determination, optimism, boundless enthusiasm, perseverance, hard work, and self-reliance.
