Writing in France in the nineteenth century, Jules Verne expressed the universal fascination with adventure and exploration. Collecting Five Weeks in a Balloon, Around the World in Eighty Days, A Journey to the Center of the Earth, From the Earth to the Moon, Round the Moon, Twenty-Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, and The Mysterious Island, this omnibus offers a unique compilation of seven of Verne's Voyages extraordinaires, stories in which he extrapolated developing technology and invention into marvelous fiction.
This volume offers readers a generous introduction to Jules Verne, whose books are as alive today as they were for readers new to the ideas expressed in them during his time.
