Alexander Selkirk

What an interesting read! It is fun to travel back in time and learn interesting tidbits of history.

1709, Scottish sailor Alexander Selkirk was finally rescued from a deserted island he inhabited for over four years.  The island he found himself on was Más a Tierra, the largest island of the Juan Fernández group of islands, around 400 miles west of South America.  Today the island has been re-named to “Robinson Crusoe”.  One of the other islands in that group, around 100 miles west of Robinson Crusoe island, has also been renamed Alejandro Selkirk.
