THE LOST WORLD

When Edward Dunn Malone is asked by their news editor what kind of mission he wants, for the paper Daily Gazette,he asks for, “Anything that has adventure and danger in it.” But he never expects that he is going to interview Professor Challenger. He prepares himself for something strange but not for an overpowering personality. According to Tarp Henry, a staff of Nature,he remembers Professor Challenger claiming discovering some queer animals. Henry believes that the professor faked some photographs which he took in South America, and that he was a faddist and could not get along with others. Still, Malone is convinced that there is truth in Challenger’s claim, so he volunteers when the professor asks for a committee that will test his theory. Along with Professor Summerlee, another scientist qualified to examine any evidence, and Lord John Roxton, an adventurer who knows the Amazon, they reach the plateau with the aid of Indian guides, who are superstitiously scared of the area. After deciding to investigate the lost world, they are attacked by pterodactyls at a swamp, have a few misadventures with other dinosaurs, are held captive by a race of ape-men, and they find out there is also a tribe of humans, calling themselves Accala, inhabiting the other side of the plateau and with whom the ape-men are constantly at war.
