The Swiss Family Robinson
Hardcover. 336 Pages
Following a raging storm in the Pacific, a Swiss family is shipwrecked on a deserted island. Together, they labor to build a new Switzerland in a faraway place. As this Christian family builds a new home away from home, they learn that God is the all-merciful Provider of everything that mankind enjoys. God is the bountiful Creator who has made the things of this earth for the benefit of His creatures.
This new edition of The Swiss Family Robinson is revised from the popular W.H. Kingston translation. It includes additions from the original English translation of William Godwin. This new edition includes parts of Wyss' original narrative that have often been removed from other editions. Wyss, as a pastor and a father, originally wrote this story to teach his boys the truths of the Christian faith. Many of these parts of the narrative have been restored in this edition.
"Dear children,' said I, 'if the Lord will, He can save us even from this fearful peril; if not, let us calmly yield our lives into His hand, and think of the joy and blessedness of finding ourselves for ever and ever united in that happy home above."
