Descrizione
The Golden Volcano thrusts two Canadian cousins-unexpectedly bequeathed a mining claim in the Klondike-into the middle of the gold rush, where they encounter disease, disaster, extremes of weather, and human nature twisted by a passion for gold. A deathbed confidence sends the two searching for a fabulous gold-filled volcano on the shore of the Arctic Ocean. But nature, both human and physical, hasn't finished with them, and their story plays out with the nail-biting adventure of an action thriller and the moral and emotional force of high drama. Like many of the works left unpublished when Jules Verne died, The Golden Volcano was altered and edited by his son, Michel. This first translation from the original manuscript allows readers of English to rediscover the pleasures of Verne's storytelling in its original form-and to enjoy a virtually unknown gem of action, adventure, and style from a master of French literature.
