Read an Excerpt

My name is Robinson. I and Mrs. Robinson were on a ship at sea with our four sons. We were going to a new land, and we were happy. One night, the rain fell hard. The wind blew hard. The water pushed our ship too fast. We were afraid. The men on our ship left in small boats. We were alone. The ship hit a big rock and could not move. Now we felt very afraid. The animals on the ship were afraid. As night fell, and the wind still blew. We could not sleep. When morning came, we could see through the rain that our ship had a big crack in its side. Water was slowly coming into the ship.

Meet the Author

Johann Rudolf Wyss (Vees) was born in Bern, Switzerland on March 4, 1782 and died in March 1830. His father, Johann David Wyss, wrote the story of Swiss Family Robinson for his family. Johann completed his father’s story and had it published. Many people feel that the book is very similar to Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe. The younger Johann was a professor and a librarian. In 1811, he wrote the Swiss National Anthem.
