reflecting upon all my comrades that were drown'd, and that there should not be one soul sav'd but my self ..

' Who has not dreamed of life on an exotic isle, far away from civilization? Here is the novel which has inspired countless imitations by lesser writers, none of which equal the power and originality of Defoe's famous book
