About this title

Synopsis:

Volume 30 of 54 in Jules Verne's "Extraordinary Voyages", first published in 1887. Set in Florida during the American Civil War, Jules Verne tells the story of the Abolitionist Burbank, and the conflict and pursuit of the villain Texar, a wanted man and criminal who always has a watertight alibi, however certain the witnesses are who see him. What is the mystery of Texar's bilocation? This particular edition is reproduced from English-edition public works, and is presented simply with an emphasis on straightforward presentation, attractiveness and continuity of appearance, with each title in the "Extraordinary Voyages" sporting a journal-style brown cover accompanied by a cover illustration and quote from the text on the back cover.

About the Author:

Jules Gabriel Verne was born in 1828, in Nates, France. Jules' parents were of a seafaring tradition, one factor which influenced his writings. As a boy, Jules Verne ran off to be a cabin boy on a merchant ship, but he was caught and returned to his parents. In 1847 Jules was sent to study law in Paris. While there, however, his passion for theatre grew. Later in 1850, Jules Verne's first play was published. His father was outraged when he heard that Jules was not going to continue law, so he discontinued the money he was giving him to pay for his expenses in Paris. This forced Verne to make money by selling his stories.

It was in 1858 that his first efforts appeared, in the form of travel stories in magazines. Then, in 1862, his first successful novel, Five Weeks in a Balloon, launched the series his publisher entitled “Les Voyages Extraordinaires.” The second of this series was Journey to the Center of the Earth, which appeared in 1864, and which brought its author world fame and immediate popularity. Verne produced a new work of science-fiction or astonishing adventure every year thereafter, ever increasing his following until his works were known all over the world and selling in the millions. Among his best-known novels are From the Earth to the Moon, Around the World in Eighty Days, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, and The Mysterious Island.
