In the body of the biographical narrative, there must be at least one paragraph for each of the two reasons. In these paragraphs, you must include events, details and examples from Robinson Crusoe’s story to support the discussion. Here is a sample:
One of the reasons that Robinson Crusoe is important to me is because he overcomes many tough challenges. Marooned on a desert island, he must find ways to survive with no one to help him. At first, he is very sad and lonely, and he fears that he will not survive. Then, he tames wild goats he finds on the island. They provide him with food, and he makes his own clothes from their skins. The goats become his friends. He also builds a house for himself from grass, leaves, and goat skins. Later, he rescues a man chased by cannibals. He names this man Friday, and they become trusted friends. Finally, after 28 years, a ship finds them, and the two men go back to England.
Another reason Robinson Crusoe is important to me is because the story is based on the adventures of a real person named Alexander Selkirk. I enjoy reading about people who really lived. As a boy, Selkirk ran away from home, took a job on a pirate ship, and searched for Spanish treasure. He argued with the captain who cast him off on an island near South America. Like Robinson Crusoe, he had to survive on this island by himself with only a knife, a gun, and his courage. He also tamed goats. The cats he found ate the rats that chewed on his feet at night. After over four years, some ships also found him and brought him home.
