Verne, J. (n.d.). Castaways. Retrieved from

THE three books gathered under the title In Search of the Castaways occupied much of Verne’s attention during the three years following 1865. The characters used in these books were afterwards reintroduced in The Mysterious Island, which was in its turn a sequel to Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. Thus this entire set of books form a united series upon which Verne worked intermittently during ten years. In Search of the Castaways, which has also been published as The Children of Captain Grant and as A Voyage Around the World, is perhaps most interesting in connection with the last of these titles. It is our author’s first distinctly geographical romance. By an ingenious device he sets before the rescuers a search which compels their circumnavigation of the globe around a certain parallel of the southern hemisphere. Thus they cross in turn through South America, Australia and New Zealand, besides visiting minor islands.
