Book Excerpt: 
. . .We each thought that by following the little stream downward, we should come upon the large river which Ja had told me emptied into the Lural Az op-posite his island.

We did so; nor were we disappointed, for at last after a pleasant journey—and what journey would not be pleasant after the hardships we had endured among the peaks of the Mountains of the Clouds—we came upon a broad flood that rushed majestically onward in the di-rection of the great sea we had seen from the snowy slopes of the mountains.

For three long marches we followed the left bank of the growing river, until at last we saw it roll its mighty volume into the vast waters of the sea. Far out across the rippling ocean we described three islands. The one to the left must be Anoroc.

"Pellucidar" is the second of Edgar Rice Burroughs' "Earth's Core" series. David Innes has returned to the strange land in the center of the Earth with plans to change that world. As with all of Burroughs' stories, the plot is propelled by improbable coincidences, and whenever the action falters,...more

In the previous book, At The Earth's Core, David Innes has been tricked. He ends up back on the surface of our own world, his beloved wife Dian replaced by a vile, winged-crocodile like Mahar. Determined to once again return to the underground world of Pellucidar and get his wife back, he turns h...more

Another one of those, "dashing hero saves the day and wins the heart of the pretty girl" stories that ERB loved to wright. He had an amazing imagination considering how long ago these stories were written. I'm busy reading all these old classics and having a lot of fun. Definatley worth the read....more

I liked the first volume very much and I liked this, too.
It was easy to read and an exciting adventure.

I have an older edition of this book, from Del Rey, and it's pretty good. I don't care as much for the Hollow Earth stories as his Martian and Venus series, but it's still grand adventure.

Well, pushed through the first two books of the Pellucidar series in two nights, and what an awesome series so far. This book was basically the icing on the cake as a follow-up to At the Earth's Core and filled in everything and more that I wanted to know about this strange new land. Just the b...more

You know that “Star Trek” TOS episode where the advanced aliens send Kirk and the lizard captain to fight it out on the planet that's just Bronson Canyon, and they're both told they'll have materials to make weapons? I saw that when I was a kid and I was like “that zip-gun is all he makes? What...more
