From the Publisher:

"For many days we had been tempest-tossed . . .the raging storm increased in fury on the seventh day all hope was lost." From these dire opening lines, a delightful story of adventure begins. One family will emerge alive from this terrible storm: the Robinson's -- a Swiss pastor, his wife, and four sons, plus two dogs and a shipload of livestock, hens, pigeons and geese! Inspired by Daniel Defoe's "Robinson Cruesoe," this heartwarming tale portrays a family's struggle to create a new life for themselves on a strange and fantastic tropical island. There each boy must learn to control his own nature -- such as Ernest's bookishness and Fritz's hot temper -- as their adventures lead to amazing discoveries, danger, and tantalizing surprises, including a puzzling message tied to an albatross's leg. But it is the authenticity of the boys' behavior, the ingenuity of the family, and the natural wonders of this exotic land that have made The Swiss Family Robinson, first published in 1812-1813, one of the world's best-loved and most enduring stories of shipwreck and survival.

About the Author:

Johann Wyss (1743–1818) was, like the narrator of The Swiss Family Robinson, a Swiss pastor who had four sons. He devised the idea of the island and its plethora of natural resources as a way to entertain and instruct his children. One of his sons, Johann Rudolf (1782–1830), was an accomplished writer and poet, educator and editor who devoted himself to collecting and publishing the folklore of his homeland, and who in 1811 composed the Swiss national anthem, “Call’st Thou, My Fatherland?,” to the tune of “God Save the King.” Johann Rudolf is best known for having completed and seen to publication of his father’s novel, originally titled Der Schweizerische Robinson (Zurich, 1812) and translated into English two years after its first publication. The novel was an immediate popular success, and since then its translators have been many, and they have freely adapted and expanded the original German text, making it one of the most popular novels of all time. This edition reproduces the original English translation from 1816 by the great political philosopher William Godwin and his wife Mary.
 
John Seelye (editor, 1931–2015) taught at the University of Florida and wrote numerous books, among them The True Adventures of Huckleberry FinnMark Twain at the MoviesProphetic Waters: The River in Early American LiteratureBeautiful Machine: Rivers and the Early Republic, Memory's Nation: The Place of Plymouth Rock, and War Games: Richard Harding Davis and the New Imperialism. For thirty years he was the consulting editor for Penguin Classics in American literature.
