Reader 2, Level 3, Robinson Crusoe's Diary edited by Sue Hackman. An accessible introduction to the novel Robinson Crusoe with information about its author Daniel Defoe; a short account of Alexander Selkirk, the original 'Robinson Crusoe', whose real-life account of life on a desert island inspired the novel; revealing facts about Defoe's problems of having the manuscript accepted and then, finally, Robinson Crusoe's place in history as the first novel ever written.
