"The Purchase Of The North Pole" is the sequel to "From the Earth to the Moon", set twenty years later.

Some members of the Baltimore Gun Club have purchased large tracts of land around the North Pole, but for what reason? Their plan is shortly thereafter revealed to the world: using the same mechanics of their cannon which propelled them on their Moon Journey, these members of the Baltimore Gun Club planned to tilt the Earth's axis in order to establish a more stable climate for the world. Can their grandoise plan succeed?

Also published as Topsy-Turvy.
