One of Jules verne's most exciting and prophetic science-fiction adventures has been altogether unknown to English-speaking readers until the publication of the present translation. This was the long novel Verne called The Astonishing Adventure of the Barsac Mission, the first book of which is Into The Niger Bend. An adventure novel as well as a novel of mystery and intrigue, this unusual story brings a group of daring men into the unexplored heart of Africa. Their experiences on their scientific quest under increasingly strange circumstances wil inevitably remind readers of the works of H. Rider Haggard and other masters of jungle novels.
