In 1898, Jules Verne serialized an adventure across the United States entitled "The Will of an Eccentric". In the story, a group of strangers compete for a 60 million dollar fortune by playing the classic board game The Noble Game of the Goose, but adapted as a map of the United States! The books is extremely rare, was only published in the UK in 1900, and has never seen mainstream publication in the US. The presentation outlines how an out of print book can be brought back to life for all to enjoy!
