Castaways on a barren island in the South Seas, Karl and Pieter Kip are rescued by the brig James Cook. After helping to quell an onboard mutiny, however, they suddenly find themselves accused and convicted of the captain's murder. In this story, one of his last Voyages Extraordinaires, Verne interweaves an exciting exploration of the South Pacific with a tale of judicial error reminiscent of the infamous Dreyfus Affair. This Wesleyan edition brings together the first English translation with one of the first detailed critical analyses of the novel, and features all the illustrations from the original 1902 publication.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This first English translation of Verne's...hybrid of travelogue and coded detective story...will...delight Verne enthusiasts with its scholarly commentary and original black and white illustrations."--Publishers Weekly
"With the publication of The Kip Brothers and The Mysterious Island, it is no longer possible to dismiss Verne as a 'children's author'.... Revealing the sociological, scientific, historical, and geographic breadth of his vision, these titles provide room for critical speculation for years to come."--Janice M. Bogstad, Journal of the Fantastic in the Arts
