Robinson Crusoe was thrown upon shore only to discover that he was the sole survivor of the wreck. He made immediate plans for food, and then shelter, to protect himself from wild animals. He brought as many things as possible from the wrecked ship, things that would be useful later to him. In addition, he began to develop talents that he had never used in order to provide himself with necessities. Cut off from the company of men, he began to communicate with God, thus beginning the first part of his religious conversion. To keep his sanity and to entertain himself, he began a journal. In the journal, he recorded every task that he performed each day since he had been marooned.
Since in 1917 the great Daniel Defoe wrote an enchanting novel of Robinson Crusoe, who, after surviving a storm, was shipwrecked, there have been so many other thrilling tales about miraculous survivals written, like Jules Verne's The Children of Captain Grant or The Mysterious Island, or James Willard Schultz With the Indians in the Rockies. Coming up is one of those extreme stories where a group of people who survived after a plane crash, struggle to live through the hardships of uncivilized existence on an island in the Pacific Ocean.
