Robinson Crusoe Audio Book Now Available on CDs

Robinson Crusoe Audio Book now available on 2 CDs. Just $19.99.

"Young Robinson Crusoe has a burning ambition to be a sailor. Paying no attention to his parents' warnings he runs away to sea to embark on an extraordinary series of adventures: struggles with Barbary pirates, a shipwreck, and the extraordinary meeting with Man Friday. Roy Marsden plays the older Robinson Crusoe looking back on a life of recklessness, daring and adventure - and the survival of twenty-eight years, two months and nineteen days on a desert island. Based on the real-life adventures of Alexander Selkirk, "Robinson Crusoe" was one of the very first adventure stories to be published in English literature and it remains as gripping today as it was on publication in 1719."
