The Swiss Family Robinson

Find out by reading this book! This is the most loved of all the books I read in my childhood over 60 years ago -and the most remembered. Somewhere in heaven there is Johann David Wyss smiling - a better author I never found that could keep my imagination going for so well and so long.

This book's hard cover in the 's became dog-eared at first, then pages got creased, then the cover broke off and was lost in a rain and high wind hurricane in Rhode Island one year, then the back cover went also one day overside a boat I was on by accident, and I had the rest of the spine re-glued twice by my 5 th grade school teacher to make sure the rest didn't go away too- I read it and re-read it multiple times- before I was ready to go take on the world I found in this enchanting fun to read and discover with book.

I'm in my 6th decade now and am reading it again - and they are just like memories- still there, still waiting for me to climb and hunt and learn and do the things with the Robinson family that I couldn't do as a child - but oh I wanted to! I made a pact with myself that I would try to do as many as I could of what the Robinsons found and did.

I think I succeeded - I have been to and lived in not a few countries and seen and done many things - and I owe a lot of the imagination that took me out into the world - to this Book.

This is a great book.

In life, we must focus on others.You said put it on a desert island.
