Anyone reading Daniel Defoe's ' Robinson Crusoe' would wonder how a man could survive such adversities and challenges, all alone in a remote island, having left a comfortable setting in London. It inspires as well as makes one appreciate the qualities in a man who learns to adapt to a life in a strange and unwelcomed place, devoid of modern civilisation which he was accustomed to. There are times when he even fears for his life with the appearance of cannibals and savages. However, one must marvel at the man for his courage in accepting a native as a true companion and confidante. This book also tells us that man can always learn from each other, the way Robinson Crusoe learned from his native companion, whom he called Friday and how Friday, himself, learned human values from Robinson Crusoe. The adventure story, prepares anyone reading it to accept conditions that one may face when one is on the move. No man is ever stationed in an unchanged environment. Man's tale is a tale of continous upheaval and calm before a storm and has never ever been static. They are all tales of 'Robinson Crusoe.'
