An Antarctic Mystery, or The Sphinx of the Ice Fields

Jules VERNE (1828 - 1905), translated by Frances Sarah Cashel HOEY (1830 - 1908)

Edgar Allan Poe's telling of Arthur Pym's narrative is shown to be true as events come together that bring out clues that help Captain Len Guy trace the fate of his brother's ship the Jane; the very ship that Arthur Pym was on board at the time of his disappearance. Through the efforts of Mr. Joerling, the crew of the Halbrane is enticed to make the trip to Antarctica to search for any survivors of the Jane. Summary from Wikipedia.
