The Mysterious Island

Five prisoners of war escape their Confederate jail by hijacking a hot-air balloon in this spirited novel by the famed teller of adventure tales. Blown halfway across the world and stranded on a remote island, the fugitives' survival depends upon their combined skills -- and the surreptitious help of Captain Nemo -- to build a sustainable environment while withstanding pirate attacks, volcanic eruptions, and other challenges.
