Tonight, by listener request, we’ll read the opening to "The Swiss Family Robinson", a novel by Johann David Wyss, about a Swiss family shipwrecked in the East Indies en route to Australia.
Wyss, a Swiss pastor, originally wrote this book to entertain and instruct his four sons. Years later, one of his sons, persuaded his father to allow him to complete and edit the unfinished manuscript. It was published in Zurich in 1812.
