This edition of The Swiss Family Robinson includes an Introduction, Biographical Note, and Afterword by R. L. Fisher.

The sea has been in a violent rage for many days. As the winds howled and the seas churned and boiled, the ship rolled and heaved in the gigantic waves. The crew and passengers grew more and more terrified. Suddenly--as if from the blow of a mighty fist--the ship broke apart....

All were lost. All but a pastor, his wife, and four sons: the Swiss Family Robinson.

Shipwrecked! Abandoned on a deserted tropical island with little more than a few simple tools--and each other--the family must use its intelligence, courage, ingenuity, and humor to survive. And each day brings yet another adventure...and danger!.
