Doctor Clawbonny recalls in mind the plan of the real Ice palace , constructed completely from ice in Russia in to build a snow-house, where they should spend a winter. The travellers winter on the island and survive mainly due to the ingenuity of Doctor Clawbonny who is able to make fire with an ice lens , make bullets from frozen mercury and repel attacks by polar bears with remotely controlled explosions of black powder. When the winter ends the sea becomes ice-free. The travellers build a boat from the shipwreck and head towards the pole.
Here they discover an island, an active volcano , and name it after Hatteras. With difficulty a fjord is found and the group get ashore. After three hours climbing they reach the mouth of the volcano. The exact location of the pole is in the crater and Hatteras jumps into it. As the sequence was originally written, Hatteras perishes in the crater; Verne's editor, Jules Hetzel, suggested or rather required that Verne do a rewrite so that Hatteras survives but is driven insane by the intensity of the experience, and after return to England he is put into an asylum for the insane.
Losing his "soul" in the cavern of the North Pole, Hatteras never speaks another word.
He spends the remainder of his days walking the streets surrounding the asylum with his faithful dog Duke. While mute and deaf to the world Hatteras' walks are not without a direction. As indicated by the last line "Captain Hatteras forever marches northward". New America is the name given to a large Arctic island, a northward extension of Ellesmere Island , as discovered by Captain John Hatteras and his crew.
The Illustrators of Jules Verne’s Voyages Extraordinaires
As with many of Verne's imaginative creations, his description of Arctic geography was based on scientific knowledge at the time the novel was written but foreshadowed future discoveries. Ellesmere Island had been re-discovered and named by Edward Inglefield in and further explored by Isaac Israel Hayes in The theme and locale are particularly interesting because Captain Hatteras shows many similarities to the doomed Arctic explorer Sir John Franklin.
