Excerpt

more the surface of Pellucidar. Mysterious and terrible, grotesque and savage though she is in many of her aspects, I can not but love her. Her very savagery appealed to me, for it is the savagery of unspoiled Nature.

The magnificence of her tropic beauties enthralled me. Her mighty land areas breathed unfettered free-dom.

Her untracked oceans, whispering of virgin wonders unsullied by the eye of man, beckoned me out upon their restless bosoms.

Not for an instant did I regret the world of my nativity. I was in Pellucidar. I was home. And I was content.

As I stood dreaming beside the giant thing that had brought me safely through the earth's crust, my travel-ing companion, the hideous Mahar, emerged from the interior of the prospector and stood beside me. For a long time she remained motionless.

What thoughts were passing through the convolutions of her reptilian brain?

I do not know.

She was a member of the dominant race of Pel-lucidar. By a strange freak of ev

Very similar experience to that of reading "At the Earth's Core" - if you liked that, you'll like the sequel.

I found it flawed in similar ways, not being up to the standards of ERB's better works in terms of character and plot development. Both stories I thought started off strongly, but by around the middle part became rather random and disjointed. That said, Pellucidar was a bit better read for me, overall.

Pure ERB. Few books have kept me so spellbound... I haven't read these in decades and I find myself rereading them by LED light under the blanket on my kindle in the middle of the night.

BTW, there were 2 other pellucidarian books written in the 60's or 70's by another author with permission from the estate...

This IS a wonderful story. About sequels, there were several. The series, as I remember, had

At the Earth's Core
Pellucidar
Tanar of Pellucidar
Tarzan At The Earth's Core
Back to the Stone Age
Land of Terror
Savage Pellucidar

Can anyone think of others?

A wonderful sequel to At the Earth's Core. A real page turner of a book (again), ever more exploration, adventure, and friendship. It was a perfect ending to the story for me.

Filled with monsters, animals, dinosaurs, and beasts of all types, a world is built that you could almost image is really there.
