ROBINSON CRUSOE had a desire to go to sea
from the time that he was quite a boy,.but his
parents did not wish it, so the first opportunity he
sailed away without saying anything to anybody,
never thinking of the sorrow his kind Father and
Mother would feel when he was not to be found.
After a great many adventures, when he had been
away a long time, he was wrecked on the Island of
Juan Fernandez. The ship was driven on the rocks

in a storm, and everyone on board was drowned
except Robinson himself, who was washed ashore
by the waves just as night was coming on. In the
morning he made a raft of pieces of wood, and went
to the ship a good many times and collected all
manner of things, not forgetting guns, pistols, powder,
and tools of all kinds; he was also fortunate enough
to save a dog and two cats which had been on
board. When he had built his hut and put into it

which he had been cast ashore were worn out, he
killed some goats and made clothes of their skins,
and an umbrella also. He next made a bow and
arrows, and some spears and fishing-line, and prac-
tised .*using them till he became so skilful that he
could kill goals and catch 'fish when he wanted
them, and, on going one day to the other side of the
island, he found some turtles, so he carried one
home and cooked it. This was a great treat to him
after having eaten only goat's flesh for so long. He
next cut down some trees and made a fence with
their trunks and branches all round his hut. Then
he caught some goats when they were quite young,
and tamed them; this he did by digging a pit into
which they fell without being hurt, and then carrying
them ho me to
his enclosure,
where they
soon became
quite tame./,

managed to catch a parrot and teach it to talk.
One day he began building a boat, by means of
which he hoped to visit other islands. He was on
his way to work at this boat one morning when
he saw the print of a naked foot on the sand. He
was so much frightened that he ran back to his hut.
Nothing, however, came of it, for no one appeared
to whom the foot could belong. So after a time
Robinson ventured out again, though he did not feel
as safe as he had done before, and always kept a sharp
look out about him. This continued for about two

years, and then one dayhe saw a number of savages on
the beach, where there was a fire, and as there were
several canoes drawn up close by, he supposed, as
he afterwards knew to be the case, that they had
come from another island, and his horror was much
increased when he saw them actually kill one of two
men who lay bound on the ground, and eat his body
after cooking it at the fire. While they did this the
other prisoner, a black boy, escaped and ran in the
direction of the place where Robinson was hiding.

followed him, but

that they leapt

Robinson gave the
lad whom he had
saved the name of

Friday, because it was on a Friday that he came.
He soon became an affectionate servant to his
master, and the two were very happy together.
Then they set about building a large boat in
which to make a voyage. This they accomplished
in time, and loaded it with provisions, but whilst
they were waiting for fine and calm weather
in which to start, some canoes full of savages
again visited the island, having with them a
prisoner whom they were going to kill and eat.
Robinson and Friday attacked them with the guns,
and having killed a great number, beat the remainder

into the :sea. A few were able to get into their
canoes and paddle away, but they were obliged to
leave behind one canoe containing the prisoner,
and him, Friday, to his great joy, recognized as his
Father. Not very long afterwards Crusoe and Friday
one day saw a boat-load of white men come up to
the shore. Some of the white men were bound,
and the others were treating them cruelly. After
a while the prisoners sat down under a tree and
