Publisher Description

From the Earth to the Moon and ‘Round the Moon is the first story of space exploration and remains a beloved work of daring exploits-and surprisingly accurate scientific conjecture. When the members of the Baltimore Gun Club-bored Civil War veterans-decide to fill their time by embarking on a project to shoot themselves to the moon, the race is on to raise money, overcome engineering challenges, and convince detractors that they’re anything but “Lunatics. ” With this work, Verne inspired the first science fiction film, 1902’s Le Voyage dans la lune, and accurately predicted that that ideal location for a space base is in Florida.

Kordain ,

Good classic.

A good account of how men back in 1800s thought about science and technology. Well read.

BarbMoon ,

What a journey.

The book does start off quite slow and has some uninteresting chapters. However, in all a remarkable book that builds in momentum as the plot progresses. Verne’s genius is fully at work with the amount of scientific knowledge of his time poured into the endeavor of the Gun Club. Truly a wonderful book.
