Books about journeys and adventures are always loved by readers of all ages. Perhaps this comes from the fact that each of us still lives a desire to know more about the world, become closer to what is happening around us. The story I like to read Teens, and respectable fathers of families, young scientists and ladies of advanced years.
Travel and countries subject to universal love, where there is no division by gender, social or age-dependent. And anyone who loves the works of Jules Verne, you may remember that the book «In Search of the Castaways: The Children of Captain Grant», is literally filled with interesting information about the world. This novel is full of stories and facts about animals, about nature and its phenomena, about the continents, their flora and fauna. And, of course, is a science fiction work, was not without the most important thing so looking for the reader is a mystery.
A mystery, in this particular case is to get the bottle found in the stomach of a shark (which caught the sailors of the yacht “Duncan” owned by a rich Scot Edward Glenarvan), and a bottle of half – erased message in three languages: German, Spanish and English, where a captain Grant wants help. This message was the organization of a rescue expedition, at the head of which was Lord Glenarvan, lady Helena, cousin of Lord – major McNabbs, the children of captain Grant, Mary and Robert, captain John mangles, his assistant Tom Austin, about twenty sailors and accidentally trapped on Board the yacht, absent-minded by nature, French geographer and historian Jacques Paganel.
So the team assembled and the vessel sets sail in search of the 37th parallel, on rescuing the captain of the ship “Britain,” Harry Grant. All these people gathered in one team, despite many obstacles and endless clashes between life and death, were still able to resist and to preserve the integrity of this company, showing all of his courage, bravery and dedication. And men and women were level, not complaining about fate or deprivation. And such behavior, the kind of character I want to emulate, because they are strong people who care about their neighbors are never left neglected or abandoned, they always get help from heaven.
