Five thousand years ago, the Kinley built a ship capable of traveling faster than light. It carried a group of scientists to a small, distant planet - a primitive place called Earth. Its mission was peaceful observation. But when the ship was destroyed, the Kinley crew found themselves stranded in ancient Egypt, participants in the pageant of life in the time of the Pharaohs. They buried remnants of their technology deep beneath the desert and sent a last desperate message home…. Five thousand years later, the Kinley homeworld hovers on the brink of extinction.

The only female student in Cambridge University’s medical program, Jane Porter is far more comfortable in a lab coat dissecting corpses than she is in a corset and gown sipping afternoon tea. A budding paleoanthropologist, Jane dreams of traveling the globe in search of fossils that will prove the evolutionary theories of her scientific hero, Charles Darwin. When dashing American explorer Ral Conrath invites Jane and her father to join an expedition deep into West Africa, she can hardly believe her luck.

If you could sum up Jane: The Woman Who Loved Tarzan in three words, what would they be?

Exciting,Adventure,Love

Who was your favorite character and why?

Well,that would be Jane.Quite the character she is.How could any man resist her? Strong willed,smart,sexy,and full of life.

Which character – as performed by Suzan Crowley – was your favorite?

Again Jane. But surprisingly ,Ms.Crowley was quite adept at doing a variety of voices,male and female.When she voices Ral,you can feel the evil in him.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did not want to put it down!

Any additional comments?

Having already read the book,I was hesitant to purchase the audio.I'm certainly glad I did.Susan Crowley absolutely brought this book to life! Such emotions in Jane.I actually got goosebumps.Loved It.

This is the true story of the real Colonel Fawcett, whose life was the inspiration for the best-selling book The Lost City of Z and an upcoming movie starring Brad Pitt. A thrilling account, it tells of Colonel Fawcett and his mysterious disappearance in the Amazon jungle, which is now considered one of the greatest mysteries of the 20th century.
