Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

Five Union prisoners of war escape in a balloon from Richmond, Virginia, and land on an uninhabited island, where they begin to reconstruct a civilization.

Don Roxburgh

This book is well-written, and exciting, but certainly 'of its time' with regard to environmental and conservation issues. For anyone familiar with other Jules Verne novels, it is written in the same style, and keeps you involved with the characters and the action. Definitely worth reading if you like stories like those from 'Boys' Own.
