The Adventures of Captain Hatteras, Part 2: The Field of Ice

by Jules Verne

The Adventures of Captain Hatteras is an adventure novel by Jules Verne in two parts: The English at the North Pole (French: Les Anglais au pôle nord) and The desert of ice (French: Le Désert de glace). The novel was published for the first time in 1864. The definitive version from 1866 was included in the Voyages extraordinaires series ('The Extraordinary Voyages'). Although it was the first book of the series it was labelled as number two. Three of Verne's books from 1863-65 (Five Weeks in a Balloon, Journey to the Centre of the Earth, and From the Earth to the Moon) were added into the series retroactively. Captain Hatteras shows many similarities with the English naval explorer Sir John Franklin.
