Your ship sinks, your rescuers are attacked by a hostile German U-boat built by your own family's shipyard, and your fate is inextricably tied to those of your fellow survivors and German adversaries. Then, to make matters infinitely worse, you land on a remote, prehistoric island that was assumed to be extinct! How would you survive? Who would you trust and what would you do? Bowen, our young hero, could never have imagined the adventures he'd be forced to embark upon when he arrived on the inhospitable coast of Caspak and set up camp there. He could never have fathomed having to cope in an alien landscape inhabited by dinosaurs, Neanderthals, aerial monsters and an almost unearthly flora and fauna... "The Land that Time Forgot" is the first book in the Caspak trilogy, written by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Since 1918, this science fiction story has delighted and enthralled millions of readers and will capture your imagination, by bringing to life the wild, ferocious and dangerous island that is Caspak.
"I "highly recommend" Campfire's comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in a way that excites kids about classic literature." -- Chris Wilson, The Graphic Classroom (a resource for teachers and librarians)"The art is lively and detailed... These are well-drawn and exciting adventure stories." -- JenniferW, "No Flying No Tights"
Edgar Rice Burroughs was born in Chicago in 1875. He took inspiration for many of his stories from the classical mythology and literature he studied in his youth, and from the time he spent at an Idaho ranch set up by his brothers. "A Princess of Mars" appeared as a novel in 1912, and his career as a professional writer took off. Another phenomenally successful novel was "Tarzan of the Apes," published in 1914. The character Tarzan went on to become a legend in his own right. Burroughs died on March 19, 1950 having written well over 50 novels.
