Michael Strogoff: The Courier of the Czar (French: Michel Strogoff) is a novel written by Jules Verne in 1876. Critics, including Leonard S. Davidow, [1] consider it one of Verne's best books. Davidow wrote, "Jules Verne has written no better book than this, in fact it is deservedly ranked as one of the most thrilling tales ever written." Unlike some of Verne's other novels, it is not science fiction, but a scientific phenomenon (Leidenfrost effect) is a plot device. The book was later adapted to a play, by Verne himself and Adolphe d'Ennery. Incidental music to the play was written by Alexandre Artus in 1880. The book has been adapted several times for films, television and cartoon series.

There were few countries which were so full of interest to the world as was Russia. In laying the scene of this story in this great empire, Jules Verne seems to have aimed to gratify his readers. A revolt in some of the remoter provinces makes it necessary for the Czar to communicate with his brother, the Grand Duke, at Irkutsk. Michael Strogoff, one of the corps of the couriers of the Czar, is selected for the dangerous service. His marvelous coolness, prudence, and courage are constantly and thoroughly tested in the course of his perilous journey, but atlast he falls into the hands of the insurgents. The story of his thrilling adventures is related with such vivid power as to make it seem like an actual narrative, while the descriptions of the country, of the people, and of their customs are evidently the result of actual study and close observation.

Castaways on a barren island in the South Seas, Karl and Pieter Kip are rescued by the brig James Cook. After helping to quell an onboard mutiny, however, they suddenly find themselves accused and convicted of the captain’s murder. In this story, one of his last Voyages Extraordinaires, Verne interweaves an exciting exploration of the South Pacific with a tale of judicial error reminiscent of the infamous Dreyfus Affair. This Wesleyan edition brings together the first English translation with one of the first detailed critical analyses of the novel, and features all the illustrations from the original 1902 publication.
