Pirates Of Venus - Edgar Rice Burroughs

http://gutenberg.net.au/ebooks03/0300211h.html

Carson Napier sets out, and ends up on the cloud enshrouded planet - where the natives are in conflict with each other. They think he is a Thorist spy for a while, coming to them with his outlandish story, until they realise he isn't faking not knowing the Amtorian language at all - and is also a rather funny color and look.

There's a space princess that is not so keen on hobnobbing with the common alien man.

One man's war, is another man's pirate, it seems.

The Amtor series, however, is not as good as Barsoom.
