Who was the real Robinson Crusoe? In search of the world’s most famous castaway, Tim Severin travels where men were shipwrecked or abandoned in the days of the pirates and buccaneers… and lived to tell their tales of survival. Seeking Robinson Crusoe combines travel to remote islands and shores with brilliant literary detective work. Its cast of characters ranges from rascally 18th century sea captains to the present-day native peoples of the Caribbean rim. A tale of adventure and discovery, Seeking Robinson Crusoe is a fantastic journey into myth and history.
