Description of this Book

In 1704 a Scottish sailor called Alexander Selkirk was marooned on a remote and uninhabited island in the South Pacific. He spent the next four and a half years there, completely alone, struggling to survive using little other than his wits. How did he come to be there, how did he manage to survive for so long, and what was life as a castaway like? Castaway is a story of survival and resourcefulness, packed with fascinating historical details and a good dose of adventure. TreeTops inFact is a non-fiction series that aims to engage children in reading for pleasure as powerfully as fiction does. The variety of topics means there are books to interest every child in this compelling series. The series is written by top children's authors and subject experts. The books are carefully levelled, making it easy to match every child to the right book.
