This is the story of Turck's adventures in the land that was all but lost to the world."--The publisher

The adventures of Billy Byrne, thug and gunman, in the underworld of Chicago and San Francisco, and on his mysterious cruise to the unexplored islands of the Pacific, make a yarn as strange and as vivid as even the famous Tarzan tales.

And the most astonishing thing in the book is the development of character of these two whom fate threw together in the strangest of circumstances. [Publit]
The mad king by Edgar Rice Burroughs( Book )
35 editions published between 1914 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 241 libraries worldwide
All Ludstadt was in an uproar. The mad king had escaped. For ten years no man of them all had set eyes upon the face of the boy-king who had been hastened to the grim castle of Blentz upon the death of the old king, his father. Into this troubled country came Barney Custer of Beatrice, Nebraska, a virtual twin of the mad king. Burroughs wrote this tale of confused identity and royal intrigue in 1914-15, just as World War I was about to begin, and the events that led to the war inform the book as Burroughs wrote. It means to be an homage to Anthony Hope's Prisoner of Zenda but the war's influcence makes it a very different story from Hope's almost-whimsical novel. [Publit]
