Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe
One of the most famous survival adventures of all time - with an introduction by Bear Grylls.

At first he is devastated, but slowly, with patience and imagination, he transforms his dismal island into a tropical paradise. For twenty-four years he lives with no human companionship - until one fateful day, when he discovers he is not alone...
