The Lost World
I have wrought my simple plan, If I give one hour of joy, to the boy who's half a man, Or the man who's half a boy.
This is the story of an expedition to a plateau in the Amazon basin of South America where prehistoric animals (dinosaurs and other extinct creatures) still survive. It was originally published serially in the popular Strand Magazine and illustrated by New-Zealand-born artist Harry Rountree during the months of April–November 1912. The character of Professor Challenger was introduced in this book. The novel also describes a war between indigenous people and a vicious tribe of ape-like creatures.
In this classic tale by the creator of Sherlock Holmes, a scientific expedition headed by the larger than life Professor Challenger, sets out to explore a plateau in South America that remains frozen in time from the days when dinosaurs roamed the earth. Seemingly impossible to penetrate, this lost world holds great danger for the expedition team, from fiendish ape-men to terrifying prehistoric creatures. A fascinating tale of adventure and discovery, The Lost World will excite the imagination as Doyle takes the reader back through time.
