Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
Death by slow torture seemed the inevitable fate of Captain John Carter, American soldier of fortune. Ferocious Apache warriors closed in on him . . . then - inexplicably - they fled in terror. What had they seen? Suddenly John Carter realised that the barren landscape around him is not of this earth - neither are the gigantic green monsters that take him captive. But are these cruel and grotesque mutations the only inhabitants of this alien world?

Then a beautiful girl is taken prisoner . . . and John Carter vows to risk all to save her and to know her people. This amazing, uncanny adventure is the first in Edgar Rice Burroughs' famous bestselling Martian series.
