Professor Challenger takes us to the Amazon Rainforest where dinosaurs hide among isolated tribes and a terrible ape-like tribe. H. P. Lovecraft takes us on a disastrous expedition to Antarctica.

In this novel, Lovecraft inaugurates the concept of "Ancient Aliens", an idea that is trending until our days in the History Channel.
