Publisher's Summary

After prospecting for gold in Arizona, Confederate Civil War hero John Carter stumbles upon a mysterious cave - a portal, it turns out, to the ecologically endangered planet Mars. Once there, he finds his place with a tribe of green Martians, and his newfound powers in the reduced Martian gravity make him an important figure in their war against a rival tribe. At the heart of this conflict lies the beautiful Dejah Thoris, the kidnapped Princess of Helium. Rescuing her soon becomes paramount, for only she can help Carter save the dying planet he now calls home. 

Combining elements of western adventure and science fantasy, Edgar Rice Burroughs’s epic romance influenced such future visionaries as Ray Bradbury, Carl Sagan, and James Cameron. 

Revised edition: Previously published as A Princess of Mars, this edition of A Princess of Mars (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

A Classic brought to life

You may or may not have read this in your travels, but this classic story has been around for a long time. I have to say - listening to this narrated by James Patrick Cronin was much better than reading this book for me. He's a favorite narrator, but he really brings every story he does come to life, and this is no exception. Worth listening to!!

Very unique story

This was a very unique story about a civil war soldier who ends up traveling to mars via a porttal that he found when he was hiding in a cave to escape the Apaches that were chasing him because he rescue his friends body that they had tortured and killed. He ends up falling in love with the the Princess of Mars, which of course is completely off limits, she is betrothed to someone else. As far as the society is concerned she is already married. This is a very captivating story, A must-read! It is very readable as well, also a perfect length if you are looking for a quick read

Best Narrater

This is my first time using this app and I am very impressed with this book but most of all James Patrick Cronin did a amazing job so good in fact I fear all that will narrate ahead will be nothing short of disappointment in comparison but never the less I must carry on to gods of Mars

Hard to put down.

I wish I had read it before. ERB is a great writer. Hard to put down. Also, I listened to it on Audible. The narrators voice was very nice and he conveyed feeling and emotion well.
