John Carter's daughter and son--two full length books in one! Thuvia, Maid of Mars and The Chessmen of Mars--complete and unabridged. Though, Thuvia, the woman he loves has pledged herself to another, Carthoris, son of John Carter and Dejah Thoris, mounts his sky sled and is off to the rescue when she is kidnapped by a jealous rival. When he finds her, in Barsoom's unknown wilds, he is forced to fight phantom bowmen, green men, white apes, and a decadent king to save Thuvia from a fate worse than death. And if he does save her--it will be to ensure her safe return to her finance. In The Chessmen of Mars, the daughter of John Carter and Dejah Thoris, restless and proud, sets out at night for adventure. Soon she is wrecked in an enemy kingdom and falls in love with a man far below her station. She learns nobility is not a matter of title but of character, only to have her beloved forced to fight in a deadly game of chess where living chessmen battle to the death for possession of each square. Two novels, complete and unabridged. Cover J. Allen St. John circa 1920
