The Field of Ice: the Adventures of Captain Hatteras de Jules Verne Résumés

It was a bold project of Hatteras to push his way to the North Pole, and gain for his country the honour and glory of its discovery. But he had done all that lay in human power now, and, after having struggled for nine months against currents and tempests, shattering icebergs and breaking through almost insurmountable barriers, amid the cold of an unprecedented winter, after having outdistanced all his predecessors and accomplished half his task, he suddenly saw all his hopes blasted. The treachery, or rather the despondency, of his worn-out crew, and the criminal folly of one or two leading spirits among them had left him and his little band of men in a terrible situation—helpless in an icy desert, two thousand five hundred miles away from their native land, and without even a ship to shelter them. However, the courage of Hatteras was still undaunted. The three men which were left him were the best on board his brig, and while they remained he might venture to hope. After the cheerful, manly words of the captain, the Doctor felt the best thing to be done was to look their prospects fairly in the face, and know the exact state of things. Accordingly, leaving his companions, he stole away alone down to the scene of the explosion. Of the Forward, the brig that had been so carefully built and had become so dear, not a vestige remained. Shapeless blackened fragments, twisted bars of iron, cable ends still smouldering, and here and there in the distance spiral wreaths of smoke, met his eye on all sides. His cabin and all his precious treasures were gone, his books, and instruments, and collections reduced to ashes. As he stood thinking mournfully of his irreparable loss, he was joined by Johnson, who grasped his offered hand in speechless sorrow

The Field of Ice: Part II of the Adventures of Captain Hatteras de Jules Verne Résumés

Jules Verne (1828-1905) is one of the most recognizable names in Western literature, coming to be known as one of the Fathers of Science-Fiction. Although he studied to be a lawyer and held stock trading jobs, he quickly learned that he had a knack for weaving adventurous stories of travels and expeditions. It didn’t hurt that one of his teachers may have been inventor Brutus de Villeroi, who created the first submarine for the U.S. Navy. Verne wrote about air travel and space travel 50 years before either was possible.

The Adventures of Captain Hatteras, Part 2: The Field of Ice de Jules VERNE (1828 - 1905) Résumés

The Field of Ice is the second part of one of Jules Verne's best novels, The Adventures of Captain Hatteras. While the first part presents preparations for the expedition and takes the reader to the point when the entire trip is threatened with failure, the second one is about how Hatteras continues the journey, eventually reaching the Pole.During the expedition, he and his men discover the remains of a previous expedition on an island where they decide to stay for the winter in shelters built from ice. When winter is over, Hatteras and his men build a boat from the wreck they found on the island. As they are approaching the pole, they discover an active volcano the crater of which is the pole itself. Hatteras jumps into the crater and disappears. The first version of the novel provided by Verne ends here, with the Captain perishing in the crater, but Verne's editor urged the novelist to provide a second version for an ending. Verne did rewrite the end, allowing Hatteras to survive and to return to England. However, the experience of spending time inside the crater drives the captain mad and he spends the rest of his life in an asylum, unable or not wanting to speak, but taking long walks accompanied by his dog in the streets surrounding the mad house, always marching towards the north.The novel has been translated to English multiple times by various translators, but most translations dating back to the 19th century were incomplete. The last and most complete version was provided by William Butcher and published in 2005.

The Adventures of Captain Hatteras, Part 1: The English at the North Pole de Jules VERNE (1828 - 1905) Résumés

First published in 1864, The Adventures of Captain Hatteras is a novel in two parts, the first volume, entitled The English at the North Pole, featuring a part of the protagonist's journey to the northernmost point of the planet.Captain Hatteras has long been obsessed with the idea that the sea around the pole is not frozen and he decides to go on an expedition to prove his theory. He sets sail in 1861 in a newly built ship, without informing his crew about his identity or about the destination of the trip. One of the reasons why he kept all these details from the crew was that he had previously led several failed expeditions and he did not want the crew to be discouraged by his bad reputation. However, he and his suspecting crew soon encounter horrible hardships - they run out of fuel, the ship gets stuck, food deposits keep dwindling and Hatteras must reveal his name and the destination as well. The crew is outraged, a mutiny ensues and the ship is also damaged. Most crew members decide to leave Hatteras, but the Captain still has a few men who are willing to accompany him on his expedition.The character of Captain Hatteras is largely based on the real-life character of Sir John Franklin, the British explorer who has led four expeditions to the North Pole, being the second European traveler to reach the mouth of the Mackenzie River, the longest river on Earth and the largest one flowing into the Arctic Ocean. In 1845, he was the leader of the Arctic expedition that contributed significantly to the complete charting of the Northwest Passage. Franklin's expeditions were never easy - he and his crews faced terrible hardships and starvation, many of them resorting to cannibalism and many never returning from their adventures.

The English At The North Pole PART I Of The Adventures Of Captain Hatteras de Jules Verne Résumés

Jules Gabriel Verne (February 8, 1828 – March 24, 1905) was a French author who pioneered the science fictiongenre. He is best known for his novels Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1870), A Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864), and Around the World in Eighty Days (1873). Verne wrote about space, air, and underwater travels before air travel and practical submarines were invented, and before practical means of space travel had been devised. He is the second most translated author in the world (after Agatha Christie). Some of his books have also been made into live-action and animated films and television shows. Verne is often referred to as the "Father of Science Fiction", a title sometimes shared with Hugo Gernsback and H. G. Wells. -wikipedia

The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay de Michael Chabon Résumés

WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE   The beloved, award-winning The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, a Michael Chabon masterwork, is the American epic of two boy geniuses named Joe Kavalier and Sammy Clay. Now with special bonus material by Michael Chabon.   A “towering, swash-buckling thrill of a book” (Newsweek), hailed as Chabon’s “magnum opus” (The New York Review of Books), The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay is a triumph of originality, imagination, and storytelling, an exuberant, irresistible novel that begins in New York City in 1939. A young escape artist and budding magician named Joe Kavalier arrives on the doorstep of his cousin, Sammy Clay. While the long shadow of Hitler falls across Europe, America is happily in thrall to the Golden Age of comic books, and in a distant corner of Brooklyn, Sammy is looking for a way to cash in on the craze. He finds the ideal partner in the aloof, artistically gifted Joe, and together they embark on an adventure that takes them deep into the heart of Manhattan, and the heart of old-fashioned American ambition. From the shared fears, dreams, and desires of two teenage boys, they spin comic book tales of the heroic, fascist-fighting Escapist and the beautiful, mysterious Luna Moth, otherworldly mistress of the night. Climbing from the streets of Brooklyn to the top of the Empire State Building, Joe and Sammy carve out lives, and careers, as vivid as cyan and magenta ink. Spanning continents and eras, this superb book by one of America’s finest writers remains one of the defining novels of our modern American age.   NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER   Finalist for the PEN/Faulkner Award, National Book Critics Circle Award, and Los Angeles Times Book Prize   Winner of the Bay Area Book Reviewers Award and the New York Society Library Book Award   Named one of the 10 Best Books of the Decade by Entertainment Weekly

As You Do: Adventures With Evel, Oliver, and The Vice-President Of Botswana de Richard Hammond Résumés

Moving quickly on from the devastating crash that nearly killed him, Richard ranges widely over his life and times—a visit to Glastonbury with James May reminds of him of his early years of playing in a band and how and why he never quite made it as a rock star; the stunts and other perils that come his way like the Top Gear North Pole race (why is it Richard who is out in the howling elements in a dog sled while the others are in the heated cab of an all-terrain vehicle?); Africa where he falls in love with and repatriates a stray car; and the U.S. (once to be chased by rednecks in middle America, the other in pursuit of his hero Evel Knievel); his passion for cars, what he owns and why, and although he loves his wife why it is a toss-up whether he says hello to the wife or the cars first. Balancing home and family with a crazy, peripatetic working life (or not, sometimes), the Hamster is well and truly back on the wheel.

Castles in the Air: The Restoration Adventures of Two Young Optimists and a Crumbling Old Mansion de Judy Corbett Résumés

When Judy Corbett caught sight of a great stone mansion in the craggy wilds of north Wales, she had little idea of the adventure on which she was about to embark. She and her husband, Peter, had long dreamed of buying an old ruin and escaping the pace and excesses of modern life. But it was only when they had moved into the vandalized, squalidly filthy, cold and wet Gwydir Castle that they began to realize what restoration dramas lay ahead. Restoring the 16th-century castle, which reduced the couple to near penury, turned their lives into a curious blend of real and imaginary, past and present. But the magic of the place, its history and the landscape, ensured that they stayed to tell this charming, deeply romantic tale of escape and homecoming.

Murder on the Titania and Other Steam-Powered Adventures (Adventures of the Valiant Captain Ramos and He) de Alex Acks Résumés

Captain Marta Ramos, the most notorious pirate in the Duchy of Denver, has her hands full between fascinating murder mysteries, the delectable and devious Delilah Nimowitz, Colonel Geoffrey Douglas (the Duke of Denver's new head of security), a spot of airship engineering and her usual activities: piracy, banditry and burglary. Not to mention the horror of high society tea parties. In contrast, Simms, her second in command, longs only for a quiet life, filled with tasty sausages and fewer explosions. Or does he? Join Captain Ramos, Simms and their crew as they negotiate the perils of air, land and drawing room in a series of fast-paced adventures in a North America that never was.Murder on the Titania and Other Steam-Powered Adventures includes 4 novellas and a short story about piracy, banditry, burglary, jail-breaking, several brilliant bits of detective work and all manner of otherwise lawless hijinks performed by the valiant Captain Ramos and her crew.Murder on the Titania: Colonel Geoffrey Douglas, the Duke of Denver's new head of security, is drawn into a high society murder mystery on the Airship Titania. None of the passengers are quite what they seem, including the mysterious young woman who always turns up where she is least expected.The Curious Case of Clementine Nimowitz (and Her Exceedingly Tiny Dog): A simple burglary goes horribly awry when Captain Ramos and Simms stumble across a dead body, a small dog and the deceased's heirs, the noisome Morris and the rather too interesting Delilah.The Jade Tiger: A mysterious woman enlists Captain Ramos's aid in getting her revenge on her former employer and Captain Ramos finds herself doing an unintentional good deed.The Ugly Tin Orrery: Captain Ramos and her crew embark on what appears to be a perfectly ordinary train robbery, only to be drawn into the Duke of Denver's political machinations via a strange metal artifact. Throw in a spot of jail breaking and an encounter with the lovely Delilah, and it's all in a day's work for Captain Ramos and Simms.The Flying Turk: The Airship Titania is entering a new era and welcoming its first automaton pilot. Or, perhaps not. Captain Ramos and Simms are back aboard the Titania for a heady mix of murder, robbery, peeved scientists and oblivious peers, with a spot of engineering thrown in.

Travels Adventures in Canada and the Indian Territories: Between the Years 1760 and 1776 (Classic Reprint) de Alexander Henry Résumés

Excerpt from Travels Adventures in Canada and the Indian Territories: Between the Years 1760 and 1776From time to time the preface to these volumes has taken on the form of an intimate talk between the publishers and the reader about the ideals and the organization of The Lakeside Press. Apropos of the extended strike for shortening an already short work week which has recently disrupted the printing industry throughout the country, a statement of its labor policy may not be amiss at this time.It is the ambition of the publishers that The Lakeside Press shall become a peculiar institution in the printing industry; one in which its work shall be carried on in the spirit of the highest traditions of the art and, by a contented and permanent organization of executives and workmen.The Lakeside Press is neither a union nor an open shop; it is honestly non-union. The management of a great industry occupies the position of a trustee both to the public and to its employees. The public should receive its commodities uninterruptedly and at a price as low as is consistent with fair wages, good working conditions, and reasonable profit.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
