Review: In 1708, Alexander Selkirk was put ashore on an uninhabited island in the South Pacific after a disagreement with the ship's captain. After four years, he was rescued by a British privateer. He took part in capturing several merchant ships that provided him with great wealth. In spite of his money, he missed life on the island. His story inspired Daniel Defoe to write Robinson Crusoe. Author's note, glossary, bibliography, index.
