"I have never told this story nor shall mortal man see this manuscript until I have passed over for eternity. I know that the average human mind will not believe what it can not grasp......"
Written in 1912 this book is well written for its time and has intrigued countless generations of readers. I get the feeling that this story is being told over a campfire.
Captain Carter is telling the story form memory as an old man of his adventures here on earth and on the planet of Barsoom (Mars). There are encounters with many strain creatures, situations, and yes even a "Princess of Mars."
It is a tail worth reading as he encounters many creatures that are different personas of man, horse, dog, etc.
This is a part is a series by the writer that brought us "Tarzan." The intro to the book alone will capture your imagination.
