Hidden from the teeming jungles of Africa by huge cloud banks, the lofty peaks of the mysterious, impenetrable fortresses of the forbidding Ghenzi Mountain range frown down on a thousand valleys never visited by man, in the crater of the highest peak lives a strange people, descendants of early refugees from Rome--half-mad, half-idiot--their religion a frightful travesty of what it once was. These are the Midianites--who now practice human sacrifice! And it is among these near-beasts in their crater surrounded by towering, unscalable escarpments that a young Englishwoman is trapped. Only Tarzan could possibly reach her. But Tarzan is hundreds of miles away tracking down a gang of slave-dealers, unaware that a helpless young life hangs by a thread...
Carthoris, son of John Carter and Dejah Thoris, is in love with Thuvia, Princess of Ptarth. But Thuvia is promised to Kulan Tith, Jeddak of Kaol. On Barsoom nothing can break an engagement between a man and woman except death.
Far to the north, in the frozen wastes of Polar Mars, lay the home of the Holy Therns, sacred and inviolate. Only John Carter dared to go there to find his lost Dejah Thoris. But between him and his goal lay the bones of all who had gone before.From the Paperback edition.
