I added a few details to my previous summary. I need you to check it.



1) During his journey, he is shipwrecked on a desert island off the coast of South America, near the mouth of the Orinoco River, where he remains for 28 years.
2) To get himself food he learns how to cultivate the land and go hunting.
Some other things he saved from the ship are fundamental to Robinson: paper, pen and ink, with which he keeps a diary of his life on the island; and a Bible, which he reads every day. (I'd like to rephrase this sentence, which I find too long-winded, could you help me?)
3) During a trip of exploration on the side of the island opposite to the one on which he lives (I need to simplify it), Robinson comes across a group of Indian cannibals who are going to kill another Indian. Using his gun, Robinson frightens them away and rescues the prisoner (the cannibals’ captive).
4) He decides to call him Friday because it was on a Friday that he saved his life.
The two live together on the island, Robinson as the master and Friday as his servant.
5) He manages to teach Friday (to speak) English. He also teaches him that eating (to eat is a mistake?) people is wrong and Friday promises (him) that he will never do it again. Like the other cannibals, Friday doesn’t wear any clothes. So Robinson gives him something to wear.
6) He believes Friday is intelligent and hard-working. Robinson thinks Friday
One day an English ship taken over (synonym?) by a group of mutineers anchors by the island.
