Daniel Defoe : Robinson Crusoe

'[Robinson Crusoe] was Thomas Jordan's favorite book, read through in one sitting at age eleven. The promise of "faraway places fired my imagination" and ultimately inspired him, the son of an iliterate miner, to leave the pits of his Durham mining village and join the Army'.

Century: 1900-1945     Reader/Listener/Group: Thomas Jordan      Print: Book
