In the first chapter the author introduces Robinson to the readers. Robinson was born in 1632, in York City, in a good family. His father wasn’t from York but he was living there. When he was nineteen, Robinson ran away from home with a classmate. He traveled by ship and he shipwrecked. However, the crew he was with was saved and disembarked near Yarmouth.

Then, Robinson had a nice journey in Guinea. He became a slave of the pirates of Sale. Having enough of the slavery, he ran away with his Moorish friend. So, Robinson and his Moorish friend set off to the South leading towards Brazil where Robinson became a farmer. As Robinson was travelling to Guinea, the ship shipwrecked near a deserted island and all the crew died while Robinson was the only survivor.

After a while, Robinson swam to the shipwrecked ship in order to take his supplies. All the time he was thinking over his difficult situation. Not long after he had arrived on island, the ship sank.

He thought of writing his daily notes and his “Diary” as a means of spending time and refreshing his memory. Another idea came to him and this was making different plans to make tools and starting building a house. As soon as he began doing this, he discovered some wheat and maize supplies and this made him really happy. Meanwhile, he experienced an earthquake and a storm but he managed to escape safely.

Unfortunately, he got sick, and he had a nightmare. After recovering, he started again his trips on the island and he found the Holly Scriptures in a sailor’s chest and he considered it like a sign from God.

In his further searching, he found tobacco, grapes, lemons and sugar cane, but all of them were wild. Although he had searched carefully, he couldn’t find any human being. But the rainy season came and he locked himself into the house.

In his second search of the island, Robinson taught a parrot to speak. He discovered that in a part of the island there were some turtles and some sea birds. Moreover, Robinson caught a kid that he tamed.

In addition to this, he found a means of burning the earth dishes and he built a boat that he couldn’t push into water. However, the ink and the bread were over and the clothes were gradually replaced by those made of animals’ skin.

Eventually, Robinson succeeded to push the boat into the water and he was carried on the sea. He hardly came back ashore and he fell asleep. Then, he was woken up by a soft voice that was his parrot’s.

So, even if he was living on a deserted island, Robinson managed to find himself all that he needed by the help of his inventions.
But one day he saw some footprints on the shore and this scared him a bit.
