"Phileas Fogg bet his entire fortune that he could cross the Nineteenth Century Earth -- with no plans, no special arrangements, and no air travel -- in exactly eighty days. Any delay, any breakdown, any missed connection, and Fogg would lose -- everything. Within hours, he was off. Across Europe, Arabia, India, China, Japan, and the untamed vastness of America, on train, ship, small boat, sled, and elephant back. Through jungles, mountains, typhoons, blizzards, corrupt rulers, blood-maddened fanatics. Saving a princess, fighting duels, battling savages. And chased by a relentless bounty hunter who, convinced Fogg was a fleeing bank robber, meant to stop him at any cost!"
