The First English Edition of This Classic Verne Adventure -- with a Unique Feminist Twist. This Wesleyan edition features notes and a critical introduction by renowned Verne scholar Walter James Miller, as well as reproductions of all the illustrations from the original French edition. Written in 1898 and part of Jules Verne's famous series Voyages Extraordinaires, The Mighty Orinoco tells the story of a young man's search for his father along the then-uncharted Orinoco River of Venezuela. The text contains all the ingredients of a classic Verne scientific-adventure tale: exploration and discovery, humor and drama, dastardly villains and intrepid heroes, and a host of near-fatal encounters with crocodiles, jungle fever, Indians and outlaws -- all set in a wonderfully exotic locale. The Mighty Orinoco also includes a unique twist that will appeal to feminists -- readers will need to discover it for themselves.

The chase of the golden meteor by Jules Verne( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Meteor Hunt marks the first English translation from Jules Verne's own text of his satirical and visionary novel. While other, questionable versions of the novel have appeared - mainly, a significantly altered text by Verne's son Michel and translations of it - this edition showcases the original work as Verne wrote it." "The Meteor Hunt is the story of a meteor of pure gold careening toward the earth and generating competitive greed among amateur astronomers and chaos among nations obsessed with the trajectory of the great golden object. Set primarily in the United States and offering a humorous critique of the American way of life, The Meteor Hunt is finally given due critical treatment in the translators' foreword, detailed annotations, and afterword, which clearly establish the historical, political, scientific, and literary context and importance of this long-obscured, genre-blending masterpiece in its true form." --Book Jacket
