Overview

Marooned With Uncle Robinson Castaway by pirates on a deserted island Without tools or supplies to survive A mother and her children have only a kindly old sailor to help. But what explains the strange flora and fauna they find on the isle?

The second volume in the Palik series, presented by the North American Jules Verne Society, offers another story never before published in English. Shipwrecked Family was rejected by Verne's publisher, so rather than finish it, he rewrote it with new characters. That book became the classic The Mysterious Island in which Captain Nemo made his last appearance. Presented here is Verne's original draft of that novel—one which is very different from the book that it eventually became.

Expert translation is provided by Sidney Kravitz, also translator of the definitive modern edition ofThe Mysterious Island.
