Description

When Civil War veteran Captain John Carter is incredibly transported from Earth to a strange and weird landscape on Mars, he finds that the weak gravity exponentially increases his speed and strength. Taken prisoner by Martian warriors, Carter impresses them with his remarkable fighting skills and is quickly made a high-ranking chieftain. Before long, the captain finds himself embroiled in the deadly warfare raging across the Red Planet and thrust into dark intrigues that have been polarizing the Martian races. The heroic Carter also finds dangerous romance with the divine princess Dejah Thoris, who wins his love the first moment his eyes meet hers. "Princess of Mars" is the first book in the classic, best-selling "John Carter of Mars" science-fantasy series, soon to be a major Disney/Pixar film from Wall-E director Andrew Stanton. Written during the heyday of the pulp fiction era by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the renowned author of the immensely popular Tarzan novels, these epic, swashbuckling Red Planet tales of derring-do and dazzling romance permanently remapped the terrain of fantasy and science fiction.show more
