A graphic novel adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs's The People that Time Forgot from Campfire.

It was supposed to be a standard rescue…

As far as Tom Billings was concerned, all he had to do was set sail for the South Pacific island of Caprona and find the last-known whereabouts of Bowen J Tyler. It sounded so simple.

However, arriving on the island with his own private army, Billings becomes separated from his companions after a machine gun fight with what appears to be a prehistoric creature.

Standing between Billings and Tyler is the interior of the island, known to its local population as Caspak. It is a hot, overgrown, and unforgiving land. We accompany Billings step by step as he experiences strange rituals, vicious creatures and ancient tribes – many of whom want to kill him. There are times when he almost resigns himself to death in the face of insurmountable odds. But, true to his nature, he never gives up.

The People That Time Forgot is the second book in the Caspak trilogy, written by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Since 1918, this science fiction story has delighted and enthralled millions of readers. Preceded by The Land That Time Forgot, this second book in the Caspak trilogy will capture your imagination, by bringing to life the wild, ferocious and dangerous island that is Caspak.

Rated 3/5
Burroughs does something interesting in the second installment of the Caspak series. Rather than being narrated by the hero of The Land That Time Forgot, Tyler Bowen, this story is narrated by his friend Thomas Billings. Billings gets Bowen's manuscript - thrown into the ocean inside a thermos -- and undertakes a rescue expedition. Of course, Billings happens to be an aviator, crack shot, and all around great cowboy. The novel has a couple of points of interest: the details of how some primitive humans physically evolve in their lifetime and move from tribe to tribe accordingly and Billings cluelessly not realizing that he's falling in love with native woman (and true human) Ajor - a "squaw" not of his race or culture.A quick, short and worthwhile read despite Burroughs characteristically ludicrous coincidences.

Thomas Billings searches prehistoric Caspak for his good friend Bowen Tyler after a manuscript sent in a bottle arrives in his hands (apparently sent from the uncharted volcanic island of Caprona where Tyler is stranded). With the backing and wealth of Tyler's family behind him, Billings heads an expedition to the lost world; but during his first reconnaissance in an air-boat he is attacked by pterodactyls and forced down. Now together with a girl savage named Ajor they fight for their very lives in a terrifying world where dinosaurs still rule the earth, the waters and the skies!
