Your ship sinks, your rescuers are attacked by a hostile German U-boat built by your own family's shipyard, and your fate is inextricably tied to those of your fellow survivors and German adversaries. Then, to make matters infinitely worse, you land on a remote, prehistoric island that was assumed to be extinct!
How would you survive? Who would you trust and what would you do?
Bowen, our young hero, could never have imagined the adventures he'd be forced to embark upon when he arrived on the inhospitable coast of Caspak and set up camp there. He could never have fathomed having to cope in an alien landscape inhabited by dinosaurs, Neanderthals, aerial monsters and an almost unearthly flora and fauna...
The Land that Time Forgot is the first book in the Caspak trilogy, written by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Since 1918, this science fiction story has delighted and enthralled millions of readers and will capture your imagination, by bringing to life the wild, ferocious and dangerous island that is Caspak.
