Robinson Crusoe

By lenocm
Lower Largo in Fife is home to a statue of Robinson Crusoe which marks the site of the cottage where Alexander Selkirk was born. Selkirk, born in the Village of Lower Largo, ran away to sea as a young man. It was in later life that he was put ashore on the Pacific Island which was to become his home for over four and a half years until he was rescued by a passing ship.

The novelist Daniel Defoe dramatised and published the true story which quickly became a classic.

Robinson Crusoe was my dad, or so I believed when I was a young boy and my dad read me the book as a bedtime story.

An interesting narrative supported by an excellent shot of this famous sculpture. Great detail and the colour of the weathered bronze is beautiful.
