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."

"The reason Verne is still read by millions today is simply that he was one of the best storytellers who ever lived." --Arthur C. Clarke
