Meet the Author

Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875 - 1950) was an American writer best known for his creations of the jungle hero Tarzan and the heroic Mars adventurer John Carter, although he produced works in many genres. Burroughs was in his late 60s and was in Honolulu at the time of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Despite his age, he applied for and received permission to become a war correspondent, becoming one of the oldest U.S. war correspondents during World War II. This period of his life is mentioned in William Brinkley's bestselling novel Don't Go Near the Water. -Wikipedia

I read this book in high school back in the sixties, and loved it. I got an electronic copy to reread because of the upcoming movie, "John Carter." I found the story as compelling today as I did back then; additionally, I found that the story included some barbs aimed at society that I missed as a teenager. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that likes science fiction and fantasy.
