Über das eBook

"The Voyages and Adventures of Captain Hatteras" (French: "Voyages et aventures du capitaine Hatteras") is an adventure novel by Jules Verne in two parts: "The English at the North Pole" (French: "Les Anglais au pôle nord") and "The desert of ice" (French: "Le Désert de glace").

The novel was published for the first time in 1864. The definitive version from 1866 was included into Voyages Extraordinaires series ("The Extraordinary Voyages"). Although it was the first book of the series it was labeled as number two. Three of Verne's books from 1863-65 ("Five Weeks in a Balloon", "Journey to the Center of the Earth", and "From the Earth to the Moon") were added into the series retroactively. Captain Hatteras shows many similarities with British explorer John Franklin.

Über den Autor

Jules Gabriel Verne (8 February 1828 – 24 March 1905) was a French novelist, poet, and playwright. Verne was born in the seaport of Nantes, where he was trained to follow in his father's footsteps as a lawyer, but quit the profession early in life to write for magazines and the stage. His collaboration with the publisher Pierre-Jules Hetzel led to the creation of the "Voyages extraordinaires", a widely popular series of scrupulously researched adventure novels including "Journey to the Center of the Earth" (1864), "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea" (1870), and "Around the World in Eighty Days" (1873).
