Crusoe ends up on a desert island and with a few supplies from the ship he builds a house, a boat and a new life. His island is not wholly uninhabited, though, and there is the exciting but ominous presence of cannibals who Crusoe occasionally encounters. One of these becomes his servant, Man Friday. Eventually the crew of a mutinying ship finally rescue our hero.

The story is based, upon the true-life experiences of Alexander Selkirk, who had run away to sea in 1704, and requested to be left on an uninhabited island to be rescued five years later. This work is often considered to be the first English novel.
