Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0812972120, Mass Market Paperback)

Based on the true story of Alexander Selkirk, who survived alone for almost five years on an uninhabited island off the coast of Chile, The Mysterious Island is considered by many to be Jules Verne’s masterpiece. “Wide-eyed mid-nineteenth-century humanistic optimism in a breezy, blissfully readable translation by Stump” (Kirkus Reviews), here is the enthralling tale of five men and a dog who land in a balloon on a faraway, fantastic island of bewildering goings-on and their struggle to survive as they uncover the island’s secret.


From the Trade Paperback edition.

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:44:15 -0400)

Five Union prisoners escaping in a balloon from the siege of Richmond set down on the shores of an uncharted island.
