"The Swiss Family Robinson" is a novel written by Johann David Wyss and
published in 1812. It tells the story of a Swiss family who becomes
shipwrecked in the East Indies while en route to Australia. The family, along
with some domestic animals, survives and builds a settlement on the island.
The book is influenced by Jean-Jacques Rousseau's teachings and contains moral
lessons on frugality, husbandry, acceptance, and cooperation. It is also
inspired by Daniel Defoe's "Robinson Crusoe." The novel has undergone many
adaptations and versions over the years. The main characters include the
patriarch William, his resourceful wife Elizabeth, and their four sons Fritz,
Ernest, Jack, and Franz. The family faces various challenges and adventures on
the island, eventually being rescued by a British ship. The novel has been
adapted into films, TV series, and stage plays, and has become a classic in
children's literature.
