Publisher: Open Road Media
The classic adventure novel—and basis for the Disney film—from the author of Around the World in Eighty Days and Journey to the Center of the Earth. After the Britannia is shipwrecked, Captain Grant casts a message in a bottle into the ocean and hopes for the best. When the bottle is found by Lord and Lady Glenarvan of Scotland, they contact the captain’s children, Mary and Robert. But the Scottish government refuses to launch a rescue expedition. Moved by the children’s plight, Lord and Lady Glenarvan offer up their yacht and they set out as a group for South America. From Patagonia to Australia, they will encounter pirates, cannibals, settlers, and explorers in the adventure of a lifetime.
