Bowen Tyler, his reluctant crew and a blonde heroine, find themselves marooned in a nightmare world of mighty dinosaurs and bestial apemen who kill on sight. This is the lost continent of Caspak, a hot, dark and mysterious prehistoric world located somewhere in the icy waters of the Antarctic. Their only hope of rescue is a note in a bottle flung into the sea. The survivors persist and penetrate the heart of Caspak to find the incredible secret that claws, fangs and spears have guarded since the beginning of time.
Here is book one in Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic Caspak trilogy, which also includes The People That Time Forgot and Out of Time's Abyss. The crew of a lost submarine encounter an island filled with prehistoric flora and fauna. It's a classic ripping yarn and fast-paced adventure story and one of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ most enduringly popular tales.
When adventurer Bowen Tyler is taken aboard an enemy submarine, he never dreams that his voyage will end in a land where time itself is prisoner. But in the uncharted seas at the bottom of the world, Tyler and the crew of the U-33 discover the mysterious forgotten continent of Caspak, where the savage denizens of a thousand lost ages roam vast primeval jungles.
"The Land That Time Forgot"
In uncharted Caprona, a continent lost from the map of the Earth, where Time has stopped and all primeval creatures of long-gone ages still prowl, Bowen Tyler is lost. To find Tyler, Thomas Billings travels across the world to Caprona, where even stranger mysteries await him, and a barbaric civilization hides, torn between the impassable jungle on one side and an unknown menace on the other. The People that Time Forgot is an Edgar Rice Burroughs novel in his most exciting tradition.
"Adventure and romance"
Book two in Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic Caspak trilogy about the lost continent of Caprona and people that time forgot. First published in book form in 1924, it is one of Burrough's most thrilling science-fiction adventure stories.
The third and final installment in Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic Caspak trilogy about the lost continent of Caprona and people that time forgot. In this book, Burroughs reveals, in exciting fashion, his lost world's unique biological system, only hinted at in the previous installments, in which the slow progress of evolution affects individual metamorphosis.
Exploring emerging and suppressed evidence from archaeology, anthropology, and biology, Frank Joseph challenges conventional theories of evolution, the age of humanity, the origins of civilization, and the purpose of megaliths around the world. He reveals 20-million-year-old quartzite tools discovered in the remains of extinct fauna in Argentina and other evidence of ancient pre-human cultures from which we are not descended.
On Caprona, the Land that Time Forgot, all of the world's savage past still lives. Here are dinosaurs and flying reptiles, here are the most primitive of cavemen and the last of the Bronze Age barbarians. But there is one more secret that the claws and fangs and sharp-edged spears guard most of all. This is the story of the man who tried to find that final secret. When Bradley the adventurer dares to cross the last terrible barrier to the heart of Caprona, he enters a world of wonder, terror and danger beyond the imagination of any man - except the imagination of Edgar Rice Burroughs.
"Enjoyable and very short."
Considered one of his best, The Land That Time Forgot, a novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs and masterfully read by David Stifel takes you from a harrowing sea adventure to a lost world.

This is definitely an adventure that you don't want to miss.
