Summary Der Schweizerische Robinson

Earn that the danger has only begun Their new world will test their courage cleverness endurance and faith as they struggle to survive and create a civilization of their own in the wilderness Not. I liked the story well enough If I had read a decent translation I might have given it 4 stars It s a great concept being stranded on a beautiful tropical island Their perception over 200 years ago would be uite different than ours today Some things that bothered me were the stereotyping regarding race and religion and the senseless killing of the wildlife they came across But it s an adventure story and it s entertaining from that aspect It left me wanting to know what happened later his afterword only accounted for 2 years I understand Jules Verne wrote a seuel to Wyss classic I may have to see how that goes

Der Schweizerische Robinson

The Robinsons leave their home in Switzerland planning to settle half a world away But things do not turn out as they had expected The sole survivors of a terrible shipwreck they wash ashore to l. they kill or enslave everything in sight whether they need it or not they pray before they do anything i m pretty sure the matriarch of the family was never actually named but merely called the mother or my wife any time she was relevant which was not very often near the end of the book the family actually shoots a cachalot they don t use it for anything but instead axe the head open and take away buckets of spermaceti a whole fucking sperm whale had to die just because they saw it killed it and as an afterthought figured they could use the head innards presumably for candle making fucking book it was overly moralizing and offensive in so many bits yet i found myself bringing it up in conversation with people frustrating but i suppose uite memorable i had the same problem with white fang and the call of the wild actually also how lucky were they at every regular meal they were eating better than i am able to and knew every last thing about where they were stranded e

E This Townsend Library classic has been carefully edited to be accessible to today's students It includes a brief author's biography and an afterword that provides important context about the wo. Its fascinating to read these reviews and see how many people judge a story of this time period by the values of the 21st century I doubt any of the people who have written these reviews have ever missed a meal let alone faced the dangers of survival in a wilderness The story was written to fire the minds and hearts of children of the day It taught them about the things that were important to their future and their families Try to remember that a child reading this book in Europe may have grown up and found in this story a motivation for seeking a better life in the new worlds of America Australia or the Pacific islands These children grew up to be the settlers of the Old West and of wild places that we now take for granted as tamed They were parents of the cowboys and farmers that built the nations of today The use of animals to survive was consistent with the views of the dayIf you read this book with an appreciation for the time and culture of when it was written
