About the Book
In Jules Verne's Five Weeks in a Balloon or Journeys and Discoveries in Africa by Three Englishmen (1869), Dr. Ferguson sets out to discover the unknown areas of Africa with his servant in a hydrogen-filled balloon. A precursor to works like Around the World in Eighty Days, it is to some extent a parody of earlier travel narratives. Harper compared it to Dickens's Pickwick Papers: ''The interest of the book lies in the air of sober reality with which the most impossible events are narrated.''
