Written in 1915, Beyond Thirty is a fascinating tale of the future after World War I as seen from 1915 – as the carnage and slaughter on the fields of France stunned the world, and men of good will all wondered where civilization was headed. For Edgar Rice Burroughs, “The Great War” results in a two century division between the eastern and western hemispheres. Inhabitants of Pan-America are forbidden to cross the 30th parallel. Europe and the Old World are forever cut off from America. Storm blown far past the dead line of 30 degrees west, our hero and his crew go on a journey of discovery to the dark and unknown continent, Europe. From the author of Tarzan and John Carter of Mars, Beyond Thirty is an adrenaline filled adventure with lots of food for thought.
