Robinson Crusoe Island - Wildlife and Landscapes

Enrique Couve & Claudio F. Vidal (2007) Fantástico Sur Editorial, Chile. 100 pages. Hardback. Bilingual (English | Spanish) edition. ISBN 978-956-8007-26-3
On 1709, corsair ships rescued the Scottish sailor Alexander Selkirk from the easternmost island of the Juan Fernandez Archipelago. Back in England, Selkirk's accounts of his more than four years on the island served as inspiration for Daniel Defoe, who published in 1719, his classic novel "The Life and Adventures of Robinson Crusoe".

Located on the Pacific Ocean, nearly 400 miles off the Chilean coast, Robinson Crusoe (formerly known as Masatierra) is still an island of castaways, holding plants and animals that arrived to this volcatic formation several million years ago. This fragile island ecosystem, which slowly generated an exclusive array of nature treasures, has been tremendously threatened after man's arrival.

Discover through these pages the natural secrets and ancient castaways of Robinson Crusoe, now facing the daunting battle against their own extinction, and of this praised evolution stronghold in the South Pacific.
