The Lost World

Headed by charismatic Professor Challenger, a scientific expedition sets out to explore a plateau in South America, rumoured to remain frozen in time from the days when dinosaurs roamed the Earth. Seemingly impossible to penetrate, this lost word holds great danger, and the group are in turn menaced by fiendish ape-men, attacked by pterodacyls, and stunned by the terrifying and wondrous sight of living dinosaurs. But could the greatest threat be another man just like them – a man on a mission of vengeance? A gripping tale of high adventure by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author of the Sherlock Holmes mysteries.
