Summaries and Reviews
Relates the fortunes of a shipwrecked family as they adapt to life on an island with abundant animal and plant life. description: Product Description: This children's story about the adventures of a Swiss family shipwrecked on an uninhabited island was inspired by Rousseau's theories of education. Many modern texts excise the more didactic digressions of the text. The World's Classics edition, however, presents the work in full, revealing the adult charm of the original work, with its quaint microcosm of learning and its gentle satire of a father not unaware of his occasional pomposities.
