Joam Garral of Iquitos, Peru, concedes to his daughter’s wishes to travel to Belem, Brazil, where she can marry Manuel Valdez in the presence of Manuel’s invalid mother. The Garrals plan to make the journey to Belem down the Amazon River via a giant raft. Along the way, Joam plans to get his good name restored, as he is still wanted in Brazil for a crime he did not commit. Absolute proof of Joam’s innocence lies in the hands of a scoundrel named Torres, who has a cryptogram that will exonerate Garral. However, the price that Torres wants for this information is much too high. Will Joam’s love and dedication to his family help him in his struggle to right injustice? And will the strange encoded message be deciphered in time to save him?

About the Author
Author Jules Verne

Jules Verne (1828–1905) is considered by many the father of science fiction. Born in Nantes, France, he studied law but turned to writing opera libretti until the 1863 publication of Five Weeks in a Balloon, the first of his Extraordinary Voyages series. Its success encouraged him to produce a number of classic and prophetic science fiction novels, including Journey to the Center of the Earth and Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea. His stories foresaw many scientific and technological developments, including the submarine, television, and space travel.
