The Swiss Family Robinson: Or, Adventures On a Desert Island by Jean Rudolph Wyss; Illustrated by Milo Winter, 1916 Written by Swiss pastor Johann David Wyss and edited by his son Johann Rudolf Wyss. The novel was intended to teach his four sons about family values, good husbandry, the uses of the natural world and self-reliance. Wyss's attitude toward education is in line with the teachings of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and many of the episodes have to do with Christian-oriented moral lessons such as frugality, husbandry, acceptance, cooperation, etc. Many years ago, an English translation of the first part of this charming tale appeared; and few books have obtained such deserved popularity. The gradual progress of the family from utter destitution and misery, to happiness and abundance, arising from their own labour, perseverance, and obedience, together with the effect produced on the different characters of the sons by the stirring adventures they met with, created a deep and absorbing interest. This conclusion was happily supplied by one of the most accomplished and elegant writers of her day, the Baroness de Montolieu; and, sanctioned and approved by the son of the lamented author, the entire work was published in France, and has for many years held a distinguished rank in the juvenile libraries there. The adventures are presented as a series of lessons in natural history and the physical sciences, and resemble other, similar educational books for children in this period. Johann Robert Wyss (1782–1830) was a Swiss author, writer, and folklorist who wrote the words to the former Swiss national anthem Rufst Du, mein Vaterland in 1811, and also edited the novel The Swiss Family Robinson, written by his father Johann David Wyss, published in 1812.

"Der Schweizerische Robinson" entstand nach dem Vorbild Robinson Crusoes von Daniel Defoe. Wyss hatte es für seine Kinder niedergeschrieben und beabsichtigte dabei keine Publikation. Erst sein Sohn Johann Rudolf Wyss entschloss sich 1812 zu einer Bearbeitung des Textes und veröffentlichte ihn. Die Geschichte wurde in vielen Ländern ein Bestseller.

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.
