The Lost World
From the literary great Sir Arthur Conan Doyle comes this fantastical search for prehistoric creatures in the heart of the Amazon.
In a complete departure from Sherlock and Watson, The Lost World follows Professor Challenger, an eccentric paleontologist, and his intrepid troupe on their expedition into an Amazonian basin where dinosaurs still survive. When their bridge to civilization collapses, the explorers find themselves marooned among prehistoric animals and a race of 'ape-men'.
This suspense-filled classic is the ultimate adventure, abounding with dangerous crises, exotic locations, terrifying beasts and the occasional damsel in distress.
