About the Author

Born in 1743, Johann David Wyss was a clergyman in Berne, Switzerland. As a military chaplain, Wyss learned four languages, military tactics, and knowledge of the sea-faring life. He used all of this education to write Swiss Family Robinson as an adventure story to entertain his four sons. However, the famous book was not published during his own lifetime. One of Wyss' sons, by then a University professor, had the story printed in 1812. It was an instant success. A decade later, the Wyss family commissioned a famed French author Madame de Montolieu to expand their book, creating a new ending. This is the version popularly known today. Swiss Family Robinson has since been published in nearly two hundred editions and has never been out of print.
