In this second series of Short Books, we follow the lives of three very different but equally memorable men. Alexander Selkirk (the real Robinson Crusoe) was the Scottish mariner and adventurer who was rescued from a Pacific island after four years alone. David Livingstone overcame a very difficult childhood to become a legendary explorer and one of the great Victorian heroes. Finally, in the biography of Admiral Nelson we follow the adventures of this inimitable sailor. For ages 9 to 12 years.
