In uncharted Caprona, a continent lost from the map of the earth, where time had stopped and all the primeval creatures of long-gone ages still prowled, Bowen Tyler was lost. To find Tyler, Tom Billings traveled across the world to Caprona, with all the weaponry the modern world afforded. A light hydroplane would allow him to scale the perilous wall of cliffs that surrounded the island and rifles, pistols, and ammunition would provide protection against the monstrous prehistoric beings Tyler had so vividly described. But even stranger mysteries awaited him where that barbaric civilization hid, torn between the impassable jungle on the one side and an unknown menace on the other.

    " A great sequel to "The Land that Time Forgot." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eddy Allen | 12/22/2013

    " Ex-cowboy Tom Billings leads a rescue mission to save Bowen Tyler, the protagonist of The Land That Time Forgot. In the midst of hair-raising adventures, he has more trouble keeping his own skin intact than in finding his friend. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsay | 12/22/2013

    " An interesting look at a forgotten name. Some of the ideas are pretty cool, although the level of biomass seems a little unrealistic (ok, I know I'm nitpicking at this point!). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Utech | 12/12/2013

    " Made up names for all the different stages of evolution made this book lose a star for me, still a great followup to the original. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joshua | 12/8/2013

    " Liked this tale a bit more than the first one. I enjoyed the darwinian worldview in its proper fictional place. Look forward to the next one in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thomas | 11/18/2013

    " I find Burroughs uneven and really blockheaded much of the time, so I was a bit surprised at how much I enjoyed the first two books of this series. Straightforward pulp sci-fi adventure with lots of blood and thunder. A bit too much weird-ass worldbuilding in this one, but still I liked it a lot. "
