Back cover text

The War of the Rebellion was over — and the members of the American Gun Club, bored with inactivity, look around for a new project. At last they have it: "We will build the greatest projectile the world has ever seen — and make the moon our 38th state!"

When From the Earth to the Moon was published in 1865, it was regarded as pure fantasy. Who could imagine a rocket that would carry men and animals through space? Today, like so many of Jules Verne's prophecies, space travel is almost a reality. Going From the Earth to the Moon may be man's next great adventure!
