Set in the late 1800’s, a broken veteran of the Civil War named John Carter stumbles upon an ancient artifact that teleports him to the planet Barsoom! Once there, he quickly realizes what the natives call Barsoom is what he knows as the planet Mars, and that his only way home is linked to a vicious civil war tearing the planet’s inhabitants apart. With only his enhanced strength and fierce spirit, John Carter will need to defeat the planet’s warlords in order to bring peace to this strange world.

Author Bio: Edgar Rice Burroughs, 1875-1950Edgar Rice Burroughs is renowed for his many novels of fantastic adventure. Unquestionably his best-known creation is that of the jungle hero, Tarzan the Ape Man, but almost as well known are his stories of other planets beginning with the very popular Mars series.  A torrent of novels followed: stories about Venus, tales of the Moon and of the middle Earth, westerns, and detective stories. In all, nearly one hundred stories bore Edgar Rice Burroughs’ name.Born in Chicago in 1875, he tried his hand at many businesses without notable success, until at the age of thirty-five, he turned to writing. With the publication of Tarzan of the Apes and A Princess of Mars, his career was assured. By the time of his death in 1950, at his home in a town bearing the name of his best known work, Tarzana, California over 40 million copies of Edgar Rice Burroughs books have appeared in 58 different languages.
