An epic tale of adventure and survival, The Swiss Family Robinson has been a bestseller ever since it was published in 1812, just over 200 years ago. Written by Swiss pastor Johann David Wyss, it begins with a shipwreck. A boat carrying a family of settlers to a distant colony is driven onto a reef just off an uncharted tropical island. The sailors desert the ship in lifeboats, leaving the Swiss family on board. They weather the storm, build a makeshift raft of empty casks and head for the island. Once on dry land, they set about exploring their new surroundings. Using their wits and ingenuity, they build a new life together and make many amazing discoveries…

Author Bio: Johann David Wyss

Johann David Wyss (1743–1818) was a clergyman in Berne, Switzerland. He spoke four languages, loved nature, and was closely involved in the raising of his four boys. To teach them moral lessons and to entertain them, he wrote and read to them The Swiss Family Robinson. His son Johann Emmanuel illustrated it, and years later, another son, Johann Rudolf, edited and had the manuscript published.
