Jules Verne’s classic science fiction adventure of mankind’s first trip to the Moon!
The Civil War was over . . .
. . . the Gun Club was finished.
What if they changed history?
When Barbicane had the idea to repurpose weapons of war for science, his friends laughed at him. His rival, Captain Nicholl, ridiculed him for his ideas. But he didn’t let it deter him.
Would they be ready in time?
Philosophers had dreamed of setting foot on the Moon for thousands of years. Would the Gun Club have what it takes to man the first mission? Or would technology prove too limited?
What dangers awaited them in space?
Barbicane’s infectious enthusiasm inspired enemies and adventurers across the world. Would it be enough to get him and his friends safely back to Earth?
Would they let their differences divide? . . . or unite them?
Sometimes, humanity’s search for knowledge is worth all the risks.
From Jules Verne, the Father of Science Fiction, who inspired you with Around the World in Eighty Days and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. You’ll love this classic because of the humor, breath-taking adventure, and ingenuity a hundred years ahead of its time.
