In Edgar Rice Burroughs' At the Earth's Core the narrator tells of his travels in the Sahara where he encounters David Innes, the pilot of an amazing vehicle and the owner of a remarkable story. It turns out his experimental "iron mole" cannot be turned off-course and it drills itself 500 miles through the earth's crust, breaking through into an unknown interior world. 1914's At the Earth's Core is the first of Burroughs' series exploring the hollow-earth land of Pellucidar, followed by the 1915 novel titled Pellucidar.

David Innes (one of Burroughs' lesser known characters) accompanies his inventor friend Abner Perry on a journey inside a large boring machine which leads them to the inner world of Pellucidar, inhabited by prehistoric creatures and primitive tribes of humans and lit by a "sun" that never sets. This is a fun read, although youths in the era of video games might find it a slow slog. This is the first of seven adventures (the others are Pellucidar, Tanar of Pellucidar, Tarzan at the Earth's Core, Back to the Stone Age, Land of Terror and Savage Pellucidar.)
