The book is a sequel to Burroughs's novel Tarzan the Terrible, in which the Ape Man visits the hidden valley of Pal-ul-don, a Jurassic Park-like area in Africa, during World War I. In the current work, set during World War II, Tarzan reverts to his identity of John Clayton, Lord Greystoke, and resumes his military career as a pilot for the RAF. Flying a P-40 Tomahawk, Clayton is sent to rescue a missing British Military Intelligence officer, code-named Ilex. When his plane is brought down by a pteranodon over Pal-ul-don, his adventure returns him to the lost land, where he befriends the elephant Torn Ear and confronts the mysterious Turtle People. Eventually he even finds and recovers Ilex.
