Publisher's summary[]

The time is 1936. Our hero is

College professor with a double life, Indy swaps his tweeds for khakis and fedora, and sets off in search of ancient treasure. What he finds is danger beyond imagining—for the Nazis will stop at nothing to unearth the most powerful weapon of all time: the lost Ark of the Covenant.

Dodging poison arrows, bullwhipping his way through a tomb full of snakes (he hates snakes), wisecracking Indiana Jones gallops to the rescue in this classic tale of adventure!



Behind the scenes[]

Sample imagery released for the book's back cover actually utilized text for the book series' adaptation of The Mask of Zorro, prominently crediting Indiana Jones as the protegé who takes up Zorro's mantle in the film. The same placeholder text was used for the Mighty Chronicles adaptation of Xena: Warrior Princess.
