Out of Time's Abyss - Edgar Rice Burroughs

Third book in Burroughs' Caspak trilogy. As it unites the first two stories, brings the epic to a finish, explains the strange nature of evolution on Caspak and delves into the winged Wieroo, I would consider the final installment to be a success. Of course, if you didn't read the first two, there is no point reading this one, as it is essentially a direct follow up on the previous two stories (whereas the second story could be read as a separate storyline). I guess I'll have to read Tarzan as my next Burroughs fantasy novel.

But it would indicate that the island of Caprona has stood almost without change for more than six million years.
