Publisher's Summary

"Pellucidar" is a fantasy novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, part of his series about the fictional "hollow earth" land of Pellucidar. David Innes and his captive, a member of the reptilian Mahar master race of the interior world of Pellucidar, return from the surface world in the Iron Mole invented by his friend and companion in adventure Abner Perry. Emerging in Pellucidar at an unknown location, David frees his captive.

He names the place Greenwich and uses the technology he has brought to begin the systematic exploration and mapping of the unknown land while searching for his lost companions, Abner, Ghak, and Dian the Beautiful. He soon encounters and befriends a new ally, Ja the Mezop of the island country of Anoroc; later he finds Abner, from whom he learns that in his absence the human revolt against the Mahars has not been going well. A great novel of fantastic imagination by a master!

The Vision of Empire

"The instinct of self preservation is stronger than hope. It thrives, fortunately, upon nothing. It takes root upon the brink of the grave. It blossoms in the jaws of death."

Pellucidar's sequel has outdone the original! It exceeds the first in characterization, in plot, in fantastical imagining, in everything but combat, which seems to be in perfect balance to the rest of the story.

I love the addition of a navy in Pellucidar! The focus on empire was an excellent choice. ERB seems to have warmed to his story by the time he reached this book. I am looking forward to continuing the series. The narration was great as well.
