Versimiltude means the semblance of truth, or seeming like it might be true. In the case of Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, all of the events that take place on the island provide versimiltude. It is plausible that he was shipwrecked and built a shelter, as is it plausible that he kept a journal, found food, went fishing, and met a stranger.
