The fascinating history of an island that has haunted our imagination and culture.
From an acclaimed naval historian, Crusoe's Island charts the curious relationship between the British and an island on the other side of the world: Robinson Crusoe, in the South Pacific.
The tiny island assumed a remarkable position in British culture, most notably in Daniel Defoe's novel, Robinson Crusoe. Andrew Lambert reveals the truth behind the legend of this place, bringing to life the voices of the visiting sailors, scientists and artists, as well as the wonders, tragedy and violence that they encountered.
