The first in Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Barsoom series, A Princess of Mars is considered a classic example of science fiction-fantasy and 20th-century pulp fiction. Highly popular after its publication, the novel tells the story of John Carter, a Confederate veteran of the American Civil War. After traveling to Arizona during Reconstruction, Carter finds an abundance of gold. Finding himself pursued by a tribe of Apaches, Carter hides in a sacred cave where he is mysteriously transported to Mars. After gaining superhuman abilities in zero gravity, Carter rises to the top of a Martian tribe known as the Tharks. After a rebel sect of the tribe captures the Princess of Helium from another Martian group, Carter rescues the girl, falls in love with her, battles other aliens, and then finds himself back on Earth away from his new tribesmen and lover.
