|Plot Summary of The Transall Saga|
Mark Harrison thinks he's just going mountain climbing, but as he hikes he is struck by a mysterious beam of light that transports him to what appears to be a different world. In this world is a jungle that he has to learn to survive in, dangerous animals he must defend himself from, and eventually when he meets people he must learn about their culture and adapt there. Once he adjusts, he finds that he would be perfectly content to live all his life in this strange world, and he even falls in love with a person who lives there. But as he finds out more about the history of his fiancee and her people, he makes a startling discovery and realizes he has to return to his own world. But will he be able to find another light to take him home?
