Nine students from London's Antillean School receive travel scholarships to visit their island homelands in the Caribbean.

Accompanied by their eccentric Latin professor, they set sail on what they expect to be a thrilling educational voyage.

Little do they realize that, prior to their arrival on board, their ship had been hijacked by escaped convicts who murdered its original captain and crew.

This is the only novel by the legendary Jules Verne that has never been available in English until now.

Although ostensibly written for an adolescent audience, its suspense-filled plot, sophisticated narrative style, and critique of European colonialism make it an engrossing read for all ages.
