Description
(Winner of the 2001 Whitbread Biography Award) The author of Gertrude and Alice, Greta and Cecil, and The Trials of Radclyffe Hall, Diana Souhami here gives us a singular blend of fact, lore, and poetic observation to portray the man who inspired Robinson Crusoe. Alexander Selkirk was abandoned by his shipmates on a remote Chilean island in 1704; entirely alone, he depended on his wits and ingenuity to survive. When he was finally rescued four years later, he was clad in goatskins and had forgotten how to speak. Souhami, who herself visited what is now named Isla Robinson Crusoe, vividly evokes Selkirk's struggle with solitude, God, and the untamed wilderness of his island world.
