Johann David Wyss (1743–1818) was a clergyman in Berne, Switzerland. He spoke four languages, loved nature, and was closely involved in the raising of his four boys. To teach them moral lessons and to entertain them, he wrote and read to them The Swiss Family Robinson. His son Johann Emmanuel illustrated it, and years later, another son, Johann Rudolf, edited and had the manuscript published.
