"A Princess of Mars" is an Edgar Rice Burroughs science fiction novel, the first of his famous Barsoom series. It is also Burroughs' second novel, predating his Tarzan stories. "The Outlaw of Torn" was his first. Full of swordplay and daring feats, the story is considered a classic example of 20th century pulp fiction.
This publication of "A Princess of Mars", is unique as it comes with the original illustrations and also has an active ready Table of Contents for easy and quick navigation.
It is a seminal example of the planetary romance genre, which became highly popular in the decades to follow, and also has some elements of Westerns. It is set on a dying Mars, informed by ideas popularized by astronomer Percival Lowell in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
It inspired a number of well known 20th century science fiction writers, including Ray Bradbury, John Norman and Arthur C. Clarke, and was also inspirational for many scientists in the fields of space exploration and the search of extraterrestrial life, including scientist Carl Sagan, who read the novel as a child.:
The vision of Mars in the novel was loosely inspired by astronomical speculation of the time, especially that of Percival Lowell, that saw the planet as a formerly Earthlike world now becoming less hospitable to life due to its advanced age. A million years before the narrative commences, Mars was a lush world with oceans. As the oceans receded and evaporated, and the atmosphere grew thin, the planet has devolved into a landscape of partial barbarism; living on an aging planet, with dwindling resources, the inhabitants of Barsoom have become hardened and warlike, fighting one another to survive.

The princess of mars This is most very great in too many words.
MAJ I saw the movie first and am looking forward to reading the book.
The author writes endings to be cliff hangers. This is part of a trilogy. If you want to find the resolution you have to read Warlord of Mars and God's of Mars.
The Princess of Mars Was reading the book on my old phone, can not download on this phone but it's available at the library. Really interested in finding out the ending.
