The story begins in July of 1864. While on board
the Duncan, a yacht, Lord Edward Glenarvan, Lady
Helena Glenarvan, and Major McNabbs, Lord
Glenarvan’s cousin, find a bottle and break it open
to retrieve the notes inside which inform them that,
two years ago, Native Americans took Captain
Grant of the ship, Britannia, and two sailors
prisoners and they request assistance or they will
Mary and Robert Grant, Captain Grant’s children,
who are orphans in Scotland, meet with Lady
Helena to find out if they can make an appointment
with the Queen to organize a ship to search for
their father and the sailors. After being denied a
ship, Helena proposes she, her husband, Mary,
and Robert board the Duncan to look for Captain
Grant and the sailors. The yacht first stops in
Glasgow to make plans for a voyage to the
Southern Seas and possibly the rest of the world.
Guided by only the latitude of Captain Grant’s
location and a few words recorded on the notes in
the bottle written in three languages, the rescue
mission travels to South America, Australia, and
New Zealand as the notes are reinterpreted and
their destinations change. Each place they travel,
in an effort to find Captain Grant, brings its own
excitement and struggles to the search party.
