Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first in Arthur Conan Doyle's series of books featuring the popular character of Professor Challenger, The Lost World is a classic tale of adventure and discovery. A scientific team embarks on an expedition to a South American plateau, where they find a seemingly impenetrable and dangerous world that has been frozen in time since the age of dinosaurs. The only edition with a critical introduction, this timeless story is sure to excite the modern reader.
