Summary (From the publisher):

Fans of Burrough's Barsoom will Love this Lost Classic! Here is a science fantasy adventure from the 1930s that has it all, kidnapped Earth people, aliens, two intrepid and daring heroines, the first manned mission to other worlds, warrior-princesses, despotic villains, and a brave rebellion. Set on Mercury as they thought it might be in the early part of the 20th century, Tama of the Light Country, tells of a winged princess from what was thought to be the habitable portion of Mercury, a belt of twilight that circled a world too hot on one side and too cold on the other to support life anywhere else. In rebellion against a repressive, male-dominated society, Tama meets Guy Palisse, who shares her outrage at the way women are mistreated on Mercury. Together with like-minded women and men, they lead a fight for freedom for the women of Mercury that will have tragic, unintended consequences for Earth.
