Robinson Crusoe was born in York in 1632. His father wanted he became a lawyer, but Robinson wanted to travel. When he was nineteen he left England. After a terrible journey he went to Guinea, where natives gave him gold for some objects. He went then to Brazil, escaping from Turkish pirates. In Brazil he became a rich planter, but he wanted to travel again. So he went to Guinea with other planters, but during the journey there was a terrible storm. Everybody died, except him. He was transported from the sea to an isolated island. He was alone on that island, so he took some objects from the ship and he made a house. He took a dog and two cats too: they were his only friends. He explored the island and made other houses. His biggest matter was the solitude. He became very ill too but luckily he cured. He wrote a little journal too, but the ink ended. He found a parrot and taught it some English words. After 15 years on the island he found a footprint and after three years again he found human bones. There were cannibals on the island! A day he saved a prisoner from the cannibals and he called him Friday. He became Robinson’s slave and he learnt to speak English. They saved two prisoners after few years and one of them was Friday’s father. A day a ship arrived on the island, but the captain was a prisoner of some rebel. Robinson and Friday killed the rebels, so Robinson could come back to England after 28 years. His parents were died, so he married and had three children. When his wife died, he went with his nephew to India and China. He came back on his island too and there Friday was killed from natives. Robinson was very sad. He went all around the world and when he was 72 he went back to London. In his life Robinson had learnt to appreciate the importance of solitude, courage and peace.
