Back to the Stone Age is a book by American author Edgar Rice Burroughs, first published in 1937. It is the fifth book in the Pellucidar series and was initially serialised in Argosy Weekly. The story follows the fate of Wilhelm von Horst, the lost member of the previous book's outer world expedition to Pellucidar, which had been led by Jason Gridley and Tarzan to rescue David Innes from the Korsars.
