A fastidious English gentleman makes a remarkable wager--he will travel around the world in eighty days or forfeit his life's savings. Thus begins Jules Verne's classic 1872 novel, which remains unsurpassed in sheer storytelling entertainment and pure adventure. Phileas Fogg and his faithful manservent, Jean Passepartout, embark on a fantastic journey into a world filled with danger and beauty--from the exotici shores of India, where the heroic travelers rescue a beautiful Raja's wife from ritual sacrifice, to the rugged American frontier, where their train is ambushed by an angry Sioux tribe. Fogg's mission is complicated by an incredible case of mistaken identity that sends a Scotland Yard detective in hot pursuit. At once a riveting race against time and an action-packed odyssey into the unknown, "Around the World in Eighty Days" is a masterpiece of adventure fictions that has captured the imaginations of generations of readers--and continues to enthrall us today.
