During the American Civil War five prisoners of war and a dog escape from Richmond in a balloon and are driven across the country by a fierce storm and wrecked on a desert island in the Pacific. They proceed to make a home for themselves with all the modern conveniences. Better written, or at least translated, than many of Verne’s other novels. Read online at Hathitrust.
