The Man Who Was Robinson Crusoe: A Personal View of Alexander Selkirk by Richard Wilson
English | 1 Dec. 2008 | ISBN: 1906476020 | 177 Pages | EPUB | 3 MB

In February 2009 it will be the 300th anniversary of the rescue of Alexander Selkirk, the Fife mariner who became the inspiration for Daniel Defoe's "Robinson Crusoe".
The story is told not only by the author but also through the words of those who knew Selkirk with three colourful contemporary accounts of Selkirk's island experiences on Juan Fernandez - two by the sailors who rescued him from the island, 300 miles off the coast of Chile (Capt Edward Cooke and Capt Woodes Rogers) and one by Sir Richard Steele, who talked with Selkirk after his homecoming.
