A Princess of MarsDownloadable Audiobook - 2001
Burroughs's first tale was "A princess of Mars, opening the floodgates to one of the most successful and prolific literary careers in history. This is a wonderful scientific romance that perhaps can be best described as early science fiction melded with an epic dose of romantic adventure. "A princess of Mars" is the first adventure of John Carter, a Civil War veteran who unexpectedly finds himself transplanted to the planet Mars. Yet this red planet is far more than a dusty, barren place; it's a fantasy world populated with giant green barbarians, beautiful maidens in distress, and weird flora and monstrous fauna the likes of which could only exist in the author's boundless imagination. Although this novel can stand alone, there are a total of 11 volumes in this classic series of otherworldly, swashbuckling adventure.
