3. Theme

3.1. It is about an expedition to a South American plateau (based on Mount Roraima in the Venezuelan Amazon jungle) where prehistoric animals still survive. It was published in 1912 and introduced the well-known character of Professor Challenger. For a fictional account set in ancient times, the episode dealing with dinosaurs is surprisingly short: many more pages are devoted to a battle between a tribe of prehistoric men and a group of violent early hominids.
