Book Synopsis
Edgar Rice Burroughs was one of the 20th Century's greatest science fiction writers. His Barsoom series was so widely admired that it inspired a number of future greats like Ray Bradbury, and Arthur C. Clarke. Even the astronomer Carl Sagan was heavily influenced by Burrough's intriguing tales of life on other planets.

His Barsoom series begins with the novel A Princess of Mars. This is the story of John Carter, a civil war veteran who is mysteriously telegraphed to Mars while hiding from Indians in a strange cave on Earth. When he miraculously arrives on Mars he finds he has superhuman strength and abilities, and because of them, he is welcomed and revered by the two opposing native factions of Barsoom -- the green Martians and the humanoid red martians. He soon finds himself romantically involved with the beautiful red martian princess, Dejah Thoris of Helium, and politically entangled with both societies in this wild action-packed thriller you won't want to put down.
