It also includes beautiful illustrations by the Victorian artist, Joseph Finnemore.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Johann David Wyss was a Swiss author, best remembered for his book The Swiss Family Robinson. It is said that he was inspired by Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, but wanted to write a story from which his own children would learn, as the father in the story taught important lessons to his children. The Swiss Family Robinson was first published in German in 1812 and translated into English two years later. It has since become one of the most popular books of all time.
