The mighty Orinoco by Jules Verne( Book )

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. 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
