c1900 Michel Strogoff
What Our Customers Say...
Unlike much of Verne's writing, this work adopts the Leidenfrost effect, a scientific phenomenon, as its subject rather than being science fiction. It follows Michel Strogoff, a courier for Tsar Alexander II of Russia on an exciting adventure across Siberia and Russia.
Jules Verne (1828-1905) was a French novelist best known for his thrilling adventure series, 'Voyages Extraordinaires'. This included works such as 'Journey to the Center of the Earth', 'Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Seas', 'Around the World in Eighty Days', 'Around the Moon', 'The Mysterious Island', and 'The Vanished Diamond'.

A delightful example of this excellent Verne novel.
