Soon to be a major motion picture from Disney, this beloved classic is published here in its authoritative original English version

One of the world's best-loved stories of shipwreck and survival, The Swiss Family Robinson portrays a family's struggle to create a new life for themselves on a strange and fantastic tropical island.
