Wyss, Johann: The Swiss Family Robinson, v1, 18 Oct 2007.

Translated into English by William H. G. Kingston from the French translation by Mme la Baronne Isabelle de Montolieu of the original Der Schweizerische Robinson, Oder der Schriffbruchige Schweizerprediger und Seine Familie.

From Wikipedia:
“The Swiss Family Robinson (Der Schweizerische Robinson) is a novel, first published in 1812, about a Swiss family who are shipwrecked in the East Indies en route to Port Jackson, Australia.
Written by Swiss pastor Johann David Wyss, and edited by his son Johann Rudolf Wyss, this novel was intended to teach his four sons about family values, good husbandry, the uses of the natural world and self-reliance. Publisher Pierre-Jules Hetzel modernized and changed the story expanding and continuing it with additional chapters not authored by Wyss, republishing it under the title of The New Swiss Family Robinson.[1]
Most of the episodes (in the book) have to do with Christian-oriented moral lessons (frugality, husbandry, resignation, etc).
Although movie and TV adaptations have often given them the surname Robinson, which is not a Swiss name, the "Robinson" of the title refers to Robinson Crusoe.”
