Order of Voyages Extraordinaires Books
Voyages Extraordinaires is a series of adventure novels by French novelist Jules Verne. The series is made up of unconnected journeys and adventures by various people. The editor, Pierre-Jules Hetzel, said that the idea of the series was “to outline all the geographical, geological, physical, and astronomical knowledge amassed by modern science and to recount, in an entertaining and picturesque format … the history of the universe.” The books are made with extreme addition to detail, combined with a love for exploration. The books give the reader a good amount of knowledge of geology, biology, astronomy, paleontology, oceanography and many of the different cultures of the world from the time.
