THE FUR COUNTRY follows the adventures of an 1859 Hudson's Bay Company expedition to establish a post at 70 degrees north--well above the Arctic Circle on the Arctic Ocean in Canada's northwest. After the post is established, an earthquake unleashes an uncanny series of events that the expedition must survive.
About the Author
Jules Gabriel Verne (1828-1905) was a French author who, along with British writer H. G. Wells, is considered to be one of the founders of the science fiction genre. Verne wrote about space, air, and underwater travel before navigable aircraft and practical submarines were invented, and before any means of space travel had been devised. He is the second most translated author of all time, only behind Agatha Christie. A number of his books have been made in films several times.
