Although we live in an age when round-the-world travel is possible in hours rather than weeks, Jules Verne's tale of a race against the clock has never lost its power to thrill. Set in 1872, Mr. Phileas Fogg, a gentleman of precision and predictability, and his manservant, the ever resourceful Passepartout, ride through India on an elephant, sail the South China Sea in the teeth of a typhoon, and cross the snow-covered plains of the Wild West in order to fulfill a wager that the journey can be completed in just 80 days. But Phileas Fogg is above all a gentleman, and stopping to save the life of a beautiful young widow may have cost him his fortune. The ill-assorted but determined trio have to use all of their ingenuity and some remarkable vehicles to race back to London. Will they make it in time?Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Jules VernePublisher: Welbeck EditionsPublished: 08/27/2020ISBN: 9781786750563Pages: 224Weight: 2.30lbsSize: 9.20h x 8.00w x 1.20d
