Daniel Defoe (1660-1731) was a writer in a time of great political uncertainty and his stories reflect this. His heroine has to overcome seemingly impossible odds to ensure her own survival, which she does in a number of ingenious and outrageous ways! A really eclectic listening experience that is both bawdy and shocking and tropical and hardy.
