Books Info:

The Swiss Family Robinson free pdf Excerpt from The Swiss Family Robinson: A New Version Robinson Crusoe is now justly ranked among the seven greatest masterpieces in literature, while the Swiss Family Robinson, a book equally masterly in style and vigor, and with a greater moral and educating purpose, still awaits the same recognition from the American reading public. The woeful destruction of our birds has caused the organization of Audubon societies all over the country- this has led to a study of the habits of the feathered songsters, and from that has risen a new interest in all branches of natural history- and the greatest and best work for popular reading on that subject is the charmingly told story of the Swiss Family Robinson that was written by the Swiss pastor (J. D. Wyss) to teach his own family natural history in pleasant stages. Though this is his most famous, it was not his only work. He wrote a history of Switzerland, in verse, a handbook of natural history, another of universal history, and a number of hunting songs, for he was very fond of the chase, in which his sons used to accompany him. On these expeditions he camped out and lived as far as possible the life he described. The rare animals he shot he used to stuff on his return home. His boys' childhood was brightened by the number of toys which the good clergyman made for them, fortresses, harbors, farms, men-of-war, shops, etc. In the construction of these he showed great skill, accuracy and ingenuity. In 1781 he was made Archdeacon. He lost his second wife, and in 1792 he married a third, who helped to tend the wounded during the wars of the French revolution.
