Telepathic birds, cavemen and prehistoric monsters. Not exactly what you would expect to find at the centre of the Earth! 'At the Earth's Core' is the first novel in Burroughs' fantasy series about the fictional Hollow Earth land of Pellucidar. The narrator finds a strange machine and its engineer in the Sahara desert, from whom he learns about the machine's objective. Popularizing the concept of the "Hollow Earth" in fiction, Burroughs depicts a haunting subterranean world of endless oceans, vast jungles, and bizarre weather conditions. The author expresses the ludicrous and ridiculous beliefs of the seventeenth and eighteenth-century scientists that the earth was hollow, explaining some of its anomalies. "At the Earth's Core" was made into a movie in 1976 starring Doug McClure and Caroline Munro. The vivid natural descriptions, terrific adventures, and fascinating characters make this novel a must for fans of Burroughs and the fantasy genre.-
