Ballantine U2048 The Lad And The Lion NF
The Lad And The Lion
By Edgar Rice Burroughs
Cover by R. Bartram
In a remote European kingdom, plotters moved toward the murder of an
old king and his grandson/heir, Michael. But the old monarch was wise,
and before he could be eliminated, he arranged for the boy to be
spirited away by sea to a safe country.
But disaster struck the ship. The boy was cast adrift, to be picked
up by a madman on a derelict vessel. Michael survived the attacks of the
lunatic, and finally was left on a drifting ship with only a
black-maned lion as a companion.
When the ship grounded on the shores of Africa, it was the giant feline who became protector and teacher . . .
