Name that Novel #2

Sorry, I am a day late with this, but here goes. Name the novel and the author:

"When I pursued this resolution about ten days longer, as I have said, I began to see that the land was inhabited; and in two or three places, as we sailed by, we saw people stand upon the shore to look at us; we could also perceive they were quite black and naked."

Good luck.

Congratulations to Liz who guessed correctly: Robinson Crusoe by Defoe.

I'm going to take a stab at this: Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad.

I haven't read it since 10th grade, so I may be wrong.

Good try, Rian, but that's not it. Think of other novels that would take place on an island in the Pacific. :-)

Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe.
Or possibly the Swiss Family Robinson. Not sure, but they are the only island stories I am somewhat familiar with.

If I have to choose, I would say it was written by Defoe.
