The Swiss Family Robinson is a novel by Swiss author Johann David Wyss, first published in 1812. It is about a Swiss family shipwrecked in the East Indies en route to Port Jackson, Australia. Upon reaching the desert island, the family set up a camp and later a tree house. They have to learn how to survive on the island. The adventures are presented as a series of lessons in natural history and the physical sciences. The novel was intended to teach children about family values, good husbandry, the uses of the natural world, and self-reliance.

The Swiss Family Robinson OR Adventures on a Desert Island Jean Rudolph Wyss The novel opens with the family in the hold of a sailing ship, weathering a great storm. The ships' passengers evacuate without them, and William and Elizabeth Robinson and their four children (Fritz, Ernest, Jack and Francis) are left to survive alone. As the ship tosses about, the father - William - prays that God will spare them. The ship survives the night and the family finds themselves within sight of a tropical desert island. The next morning, they decide to get to the island they can see beyond the reef. With much effort, they construct a vessel out of tubs. After they fill the tubs with food and ammunition and all other articles of value they can safely carry, they row toward the island. Two dogs from the ship named Turk and Flora swim beside them. The ship's cargo of livestock (including chickens, domestic ducks, domestic geese, and domestic pigeons), guns & powder, carpentry tools, books, a disassembled pinnace, and provisions have survived.

Excerpt from Concluding Volume of the Swiss Family Robinson, Vol. 2 of 2: Or, Adventures of a Father, Mother and Four Sons, in a Desert Island; Being the Second Part of the Same Work Published by Munroe Francis I Left the reader at the moment in which I had placed the first part of my journal in the hands of Lieutenant Bell to deliver to Captain Johnson, of the English vessel the Adventurer, expecting him to return the next day with Lieutenant Bell. We separated in this hope, and I thought it necessary to inform my family of this expected visit, which might decide their future lot. My wife and elder sons might wish to seize this only occasion that might occur to revisit their native country - to quit their beloved island, which would doubtless cost them much sorrow at the last moment, but was necessary to their future comfort.
