Five prisoners of war escape their Confederate jail by hijacking a hot-air balloon in this spirited novel by the famed teller of adventure tales. Blown halfway across the world and stranded on a remote island, the fugitives' survival depends upon their combined skills - and the surreptitious help of Captain Nemo - to build a sustainable environment while withstanding pirate attacks, volcanic eruptions, and other challenges.

Author Biography - Jules Verne

"The reason Verne is still read by millions today is simply that he was one of the best storytellers who ever lived." - Arthur C. Clarke. Jules Verne started out composing librettos, but the French-born author's passion for travel and exploration compelled him to turn to adventure tales, creating the prototype for today's science fiction. One of the most translated authors in the world, Jules Verne is best known for his classics, Journey to the Center of the Earth, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, and Around the World in Eighty Days.
