The Beginning In the United States during the civil war five northerners flee the besieged capital of the Confederate Richmond in a balloon. In March 1865, a terrible storm throws them on the shore of a desert island in the southern hemisphere. Each of the new settlers of the island possesses the essential talents, and under the direction of the engineer Cyrus Smith these brave people unite and become a unified team. Soon, thanks to his diligence and intelligence, the colonists did not know the needs nor in food nor in clothes nor in warmth and comfort.
One day, the settlers find in the sand box with tools, firearms, various devices, clothing, kitchenware and books in English. Settlers don't know where they could get this crate.. During the voyage on the homemade bot, they find a bottle with a note that says castaway is waiting for rescue on the island of Tabor. Pencroft, Gideon Spilett and Herbert find a lost human face of Ayrton, who was left at the camp for attempting to raise a rebellion aboard the sailing ship "Duncan". The colonists take him with us to Lincoln island,as it is called by the settlers themselves, where, thanks to their care and friendship, his mental health is finally emerging.
Passes three years. One day, looking over the sea, they see far away the ship is well-equipped, but over the ship flies a black flag. The ship comes to anchor near the shore. It turns out that the ship is fifty- pirates (some of them were included in the former gang Ayrton) and long-range guns. The next morning the ship down two boats.. It seems that a handful of settlers have already nothing can save it. Suddenly a huge wave rises under the boat, and it sinks. All the pirates are killed. As it turns out later, the ship hit an underwater mine, and this event finally convinces the inhabitants of the island that they are not alone.
Meanwhile on the island wakes up the volcano, which the colonists believed already extinct. Triggered the Telegraph, which they held from the corral to their homes. Cable leads them into a huge grotto, where they, to their astonishment, see a submarine. In it they meet with her master and his patron, captain Nemo, the Indian Prince Dakkar, a lifetime fighting for the independence of their homeland. He was already sixty years old man who buried all his comrades, is dying. Nemo gives the new friends a casket of jewels, and warned that the eruption of a volcano, the island will explode. He dies, the settlers batten down the hatches of the boat and lowered it into the water (boat still would not go out to sea because of the DNA changes in the grotto), and they spend days tirelessly building a new ship. However, do not have time to finish it. All life dies in the explosion of the island, which has only a small reef in the ocean. All of them, except Yupa, remain alive. Suddenly they see a ship. This Is "Duncan". He saves all.
Returning to America, to jewelry, donated by captain Nemo, friends buy a large plot of land and live on it as well as lived in Lincoln island.
Heroes of Jules Verne are ready to risk their lives for the sake of others. They are devoid of hypocrisy and egoism, perfidy, brutality, and falsity. Conquered these perfect characters, I believed in their existence and tried to be a worthy successor to useful things for the benefit of today's society.
