Download Robinson Crusoe and travel back to 17th century York, where a son is born to a proud merchant of German origin. Written by the famous writer and journalist Daniel Defoe, you'll be gripped by a story packed with conflict, complication, climax and suspense.
Born to a middle-class family, Crusoe wishes to travel the world, but his father forbids him and issues him a warning and a curse: that if he leaves home, he will experience nothing but trouble.
Curiosity and rebelliousness prevail, and Crusoe departs for Africa, where he is captured and enslaved. After he escapes to Brazil, he makes a living for several years on his sugar plantation...but continues to encounter bad luck.
He then finds himself the lone survivor of a shipwreck on a desert island. Completely isolated, he has a spiritual awakening and begins reading the Bible. One day he finds footprints in the sand and discovers, to his dismay, that they belong to cannibals.
Will Crusoe escape the cannibals? Will he find company? Will he ever return home? Or is he destined to suffer bad luck from his father's curse?
Published in 1719, this priceless classic tells the story of a young man who succumbs to temptation and embarks on a journey that will forever change his life.

Newly abridged by Timothy Meis, James Fenimore Cooper's The Last of the Mohicans comes to life under the paintbrush of N.C. Wyeth, with illustrations originally published in 1919. The artist offers readers a close-up view of the French and Indian War, in paintings such as British colonel Duncan's struggle against a Huron warrior or the Mohican Chingachgook similarly fighting off another Huron warrior in the clearing of a wood. Wyeth's paintings also accompany Meis's adaptation of Daniel DeFoe's Robinson Crusoe, due out in February.
