Rewilding With Edgar Rice Burroughs

Frank Frazetta’s cover for Edgar Rice Burroughs’s “Beyond Thirty,” whose premise is that World War I continued indefinitely and Europe reverted to the stone age, with zoo animals escaping to run free in a rewilded Great Britain.

The hero is an American who is the first to arrive in Europe in 100 years.

Note:  If WWI had continued for 100 years, the UK human population might have been reduced enough that that island could feed itself AND have large predators.

Now, it can’t do either.
