At the Earth's Core, Paperback / softback Book

At the Earth's Core Paperback / softback

Part of the Bison Frontiers of Imagination series

Description

Five hundred miles beneath the earth's surface lies a fantastic, timeless world of eternal daylight, prehistoric beasts, and primeval peoples-Pellucidar.

Pellucidar is a world within our world, a place where the horizon curves upward and merges with the sky.

Here time stands still, for Pellucidar is illuminated by a miniature sun that never sets but hovers motionless in the sky.

Scattered throughout the savage, prehistoric wilderness are communities of distrustful humans and the cities of the reptilian, highly evolved Mahars.

David Innes and Abner Perry break through into this mysterious inner world.

Their discovery of Pellucidar and the ensuing struggle to unite the human communities and overthrow the Mahars is a top-notch, thrilling tale of conquest, deceit, and wonder.

This commemorative edition features an introduction by Gregory A.

Benford and an afterword on the science of At the Earth's Core by Phillip R.

Burger. Also included are a map of Pellucidar, a glossary of terms and names by Scott Tracy Griffin, a contemporary review, and the classic J.

Allen St. John illustrations.
