The Land That Time Forgot, by Edgar Rice Burroughs


Title: The Land That Time Forgot

Author: Edgar Rice Burroughs

Chapter 1

It must have been a little after three o’clock in the afternoon

that it happened–the afternoon of June 3rd, 1916. It seems

incredible that all that I have passed through–all those weird

and terrifying experiences–should have been encompassed within

so short a span as three brief months. Rather might I have

experienced a cosmic cycle, with all its changes and evolutions

for that which I have seen with my own eyes in this brief

interval of time–things that no other mortal eye had seen

before, glimpses of a world past, a world dead, a world so

long dead that even in the lowest Cambrian stratum no trace of

it remains. Fused with the melting inner crust, it has passed

forever beyond the ken of man other than in that lost pocket of

the earth whither fate has borne me and where my doom is sealed.
