At the Earth's Core is a 1914 fantasy novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, first published in 1922. It is the first in his series about the fictional hollow earth land of Pellucidar. The story follows David Innes, a wealthy young man who embarks on a journey to explore the Earth's interior. Innes and his companion, Abner Perry, use a giant drill to tunnel their way deep beneath the Earth's surface. After a harrowing journey through miles of solid rock, they find themselves in a strange, underground world where prehistoric creatures still roam and humans live in primitive tribes. As they explore this bizarre new world, Innes and Perry are taken captive by the Mahars, a race of intelligent flying reptiles who rule over the humans with an iron fist. Innes befriends a beautiful young woman named Dian, who is also a captive of the Mahars, and together they plan their escape.
