Tarzana CA (PRWEB) October 23, 2014
I promised to take my lord to the jungle,” replied the Cambodian. “There it is. I did not promise to enter it.” And at that moment Gordon King made a fateful decision. “Wait for me here, then,” he said. “I shall be out before dark.” “You will never come out,” said the Cambodian.
Deep in the jungle, King falls, breaks his compass and becomes hopelessly lost. On the eighth morning, as a fever overtakes King, he has hallucinations. Or so he believes when he encounters sad-faced queens on ghostly elephants in the dark shadows of the jungle where the ruins of their ancient cities still stand. Then, someone rescues him. Or so he dreams.
Adventure in a lost city of a secret kingdom awaits King – an American student of medicine, who came to the jungle to study strange maladies and, once there, becomes an explorer who stumbles upon the many thousand year-old secret of THE LAND OF THE HIDDEN MEN.
Asia, this vast continent of ancient civilizations and mysterious peoples, has many corners little known to the rest of the world. To survive in this ancient land, Gordon King must combat the warriors of the lost city of Pnom Dhek and battle the loathsome Leper King of Lodidhapura for the love of the beautiful jungle princess, Fou-tan.
Is the legend true, that while he can escape tigers and wild elephants, no man may look upon the ghost of the dead Khmer ancients and live? The young American soon finds that a courageous man might easily enter the treacherous depths of the jungle, but it is quite another matter as to whether he might ever come out again, alive.
