One of the first novels ever written, Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe is said to have been based on the true adventures of Alexander Selkirk (who spent four or five years on an island in the South Pacific). The story begins with a universal quest and features a survival adventure that is still enthralling to this day.
