A casual wager hastens the elegant and exacting Phileas Fogg on a rollicking ride around the world with his entertaining sidekick Passepartout in tow and the dogged Detective Fix hot on their heels. By cab, rail, steamer, and ingenious means improvised en route, they cobble together a global adventure in which they overcome all manner of unanticipated and sometimes uproarious obstacles while still managing to rescue the demure princess Aouda. Full of wit, fancy, and amusement, Around the World in Eighty Days ranks among Verne's best-loved tales. This Warbler Classics edition includes charts of the planned and actual itineraries, a photo gallery of all the modes of travel that feature in the story, and a detailed biographical note on the author's life.
