A Princess of Mars

by Edgar Rice Burroughs

A warrior may change his metal, but not his heart.

From a cave in Arizona, former confederate soldier John Carter mysteriously transports to the surface of Mars. After a few successful trials with the local Martian population called Tharks, a nomadic green-skinned race with six limbs, he finds himself as a new, and respected, member of the tribe. Soon after, the Tharks capture a humanoid red-Martian named Dejah Thoris, who is a princess among her people. It is then that John Carter must choose to either ignore the captured princess or take action.

The first book of the Barsoom series, A Princess of Mars was published first as a serialization in 1912 and then as a novel in 1917.

Suddenly projected to Mars, John Carter found himself captive of the savage green men of Thark. With him was Dejah Thoris, lovely Princess of Helium. And between them and rescue lay a thousand miles of deadly enemies and unknown dangers.
