    They are tribal, and war among one another. Carter's unusual appearance and un-Barsoomian strength and agility make him a kind of mythic figure, capable of achievements that no Barsoomian could manage.

Arnold later wrote other novels, including Rutherford the Twice-Born and Lepidus the Centurion: A Roman of Todayboth of which flopped commercially.

    Though the series used many of Arnold's characters and concepts, the series was not a strict adaptation of the original book. She brought the Our Adventure Book vision to life with a fun travel theme and bright colors. He soon falls in with a nomadic tribe of Green Martians, or Tharks, as the planet's warlike, six-limbed, green-skinned inhabitants are known. Thanks to his strength and martial prowess, Carter rises to a high position in the tribe and earns the respect and eventually the friendship of Tars Tarkasone of the Thark chiefs. Sola: Daughter of Tars Tarkas and a friend of John Carter, she teaches him the Barsoomian language and the history of her race, as well as the secret of her own parentage. Yet once more, a long spell of sleep, which is not death, brings this much-wandering Phra to the reign of Queen Elizabeth, and it is there, after many and strange vicissitudes, he writes his experiences, and the curtain finally falls over the last passage of this remarkable record.

    Marvel's Gullivar was a Viet Nam vetand the series started in modern times. An novel by Kurd Lasswitz, Auf Zwei Planeten, dealt with benevolent Martians arriving on Earthbut as it was not translated until it is unlikely that Burroughs knew of it. During this time he gained a great respect for American Indians and their warriors, such as Geronimo. While there are earlier examples of this genre, A Princess of Mars and its sequels are the best known, and they were a dominant influence on subsequent authors.
