"The fifth installment of Edgar Rice Burroughs's Pellucidar series, Back to the Stone Age recounts the strange adventures of Lieutenant von Horst, a member of the original crew that sailed to Pellucidar with Jason Gridley and Tarzan who is left behind in the inner world. Von Horst wanders friendless and alone from one danger to the next among the Stone Age peoples, mighty reptiles, and huge animals that have been extinct on the outer crust for thousands of years. But woven among the tales of savage cave men in the country of the Basti, the hideous Gorbuses in the caverns beneath the Forest of Death, and the terrible Gaz is the story of the love this cultured hero feels for a barbarian slave girl who has spurned and discouraged him, working instead toward her own mysterious goal."--BOOK JACKET.… (mere)

Pellucidar series # 5 ( )
  jodeen | Aug 27, 2013 |
During the events of Tarzan At The Earth's Core, the German Von Horst is seperated from the Tarzan's party by a stampede of prehistoric animals. On his own, Von Horst is captured by a flying reptile, paralyzed and left for a hatchling's first meal. Escaping the nest and rescuing a fellow captive, the german makes his way across Pellucidar finding unrequited love and adventure (It is a Burroughs novel). ( )

Seems all Mister Burroughs does is change the names of the hero and heroine in each book, dreams up a few more strange creatures and does the steady page-turning stories of being attacked, being rescued or saved by the breath of a zanth, and the develope of "true love." I'd like to have met La-Ja, the heroine in this one. She has spunk, and of course, is the perfect mate for Helmit Von Horst, the Aryan German of the tale. (One wonders if Burroughs was a secretive Nazi sympathizer in WWII?) ( )

A young man is stranded in Pellucidar, the savage land at the earth's core.

This is a fairly typical Burroughs offering. It features many of his usual tricks: a talented hero trapped in a strange land, an episodic plot, lots of action, a strange creature that befriends the hero, and an otherworldly young woman who seems to loathe the man who loves her. Essentially, it's A Princess of Mars in Pellucidar.

Unfortunately, it's not nearly as good as Princess. It's fun, make no mistake, but it falls rather flat. The characters aren't too engaging. Burroughs's usually elegant prose, (always a bit more stilted when he's working in third person rather than first), doesn't add much to the tale. The episodic plot gets a little old after a while.

On the bright side, this is largely a stand-alone story, despite its connection to the rest of the Pellucidar series. Other than two brief points at the very beginning and at the end, this has little to do with the core series of books. The world is fully fleshed out and is introduced in such a way that the reader can pick up everything she needs to know as the story progresses. There's no reason that you'd need to read the rest of the Pellucidar books before tackling this one... but really, I can't imagine why you'd want to jump in right here. This is far from ERB's best work. You'd be better off starting with Tarzan of the Apes, A Princess of Mars or, if you're really into journeys to the centre of the earth, At the Earth's Core.

Recommended for hardcore ERB fans and those who've enjoyed the rest of the Pellucidar books. Others, look elsewhere in his bibliography for something of better quality. ( )

The eternal noonday sun of Pellucidar looked down upon such a scene as the outer crust of earth may not have witnessed for countless ages past, such a scene as only the inner world at the earth's core may produce today.
