Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe - Part 13

Download Robinson Crusoe - Part 13

Cannibals come to Crusoe's island and make him believe there is a possibility of confrontation. But in this section of the book Crusoe meets his companion, Friday. He considers this man to be his servant and slave. An odd assumption since it is actually he, Robinson Crusoe, who is the intruder in Friday's part of the world. This must have something to do with the way certain nations operated in those days and, in some cases, still do.

At any rate, Crusoe begins to teach Friday English and becomes more assured of their friendship.

Welcome to the Robinson Crusoe podcast. If you have switched over from the 'Pirate Jack' podcast, you've reached the right place. All the rest of the novel will be podcast from right here.

Crusoe worries about being attacked if his presence is discovered by cannibals who visit the island. He finds a spectacular cave and then, during a night storm, hears a cannon shot.
