Many people know the story of how Robinson Crusoe was shipwrecked on a remote tropical island for 28 years before being rescued—as told in Daniel Defoe’s eponymous book—but few know what happened to Robinson and his companion, Friday, after they returned to England. In The Letters of Robinson Crusoe: Recovered from a Sunken Ship ($13.99, paperback, 978-1-61215-472-5), a new Xulon Press title from Robin Kreutznaer, Monarch Publishing LLC, Robinson is summoned by the queen of England to help the British navy recover his island from the French, who have invaded it. What follows is a page-turning account of Robinson’s further adventures—one that will appeal to fans of all ages.
“The book will give closure to the original story, which left the reader in doubt of what happened to Robinson and Friday after they returned to England,” the author says. “The worldwide fans of Robinson Crusoe will be interested to know the remaining story of his life after he was rescued.”
In preparation for writing this book, the author—who is an honors graduate from Harvard University—has extensively researched the characteristics of the island and the beloved story written by Daniel Defoe. He has also explored the island where Robinson was said to have landed—Bird of Paradise Island, or Little Tobago. He currently resides with his wife in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, and winters in Southern California.
