Jules Verne (1828-1905) was internationally famous as the author of novels based on \'extraordinary voyages.\' His visionary use of new travel technologies inspired his readers to look to the industrial future rather than the remote past for their dreams of adventure.
The popularity of his novels led directly to modern science fiction. In From the Earth to the Moon and Around the Moon, Jules Verne turned the ancient fantasy of space flight into a believable technological possibility - an engineering dream for the industrial age.
Directly inspired by Verne\'s story, enthusiasts worked successfully at overcoming the practical difficulties, and within a century, human beings did indeed fly to the Moon. Curiously, however, Verne is unlikely to have thought it possible that a manned projectile.
It is 1757. Across north-eastern America the armies of Britain and Prance struggle for ascendancy.

Through these layers of conflict Cooper threads a thrilling narrative, in which Cora and Alice Munro, daughters of a British commander on the front line of the colonial war, attempt to join their father.
Thwarted by Magua, the sinister \'Indian runner\', they find help in the persons of Hawk-eye, the white woodsman, and his companions, the Mohican Chingachgook and Uncas, his son, the last of his tribe. Cooper\'s novel is full of vivid incident - pursuits through wild terrain, skirmishes, treachery and brutality - but.
More than a century after its publication Heart of Darkness remains an indisputably classic text and arguably Conrad\'s finest work. Taking place mostly in Africa, it tells the story of Europeans going to the Congo in search of goods to bring back, mostly ivory.

However, it seems there is another process going on. The deep recesses of the jungle do something to a man, change him, and somehow demoralization begins.
