Baum dedicated the book to his sister Harriet Alvena Baum Neal.
On her way back from Australia, Dorothy Gale meets her cousin, Zeb Hugson, in California. They are swallowed up by an earthquake, along with Zeb's horse Jim and Dorothy's cat Eureka, and eventually come down in the Land of the Mangaboos. The Wizard of Oz also arrives there, but the Mangaboos evict them from their country.
The travelers take a subterranean journey through the Valley of Voe, are briefly imprisoned in the Land of Naught, and encounter a cavern full of Dragonettes. Eventually they come to a dead-end cavern, so Ozma uses the Magic Belt to bring them to the Land of Oz.
In the Emerald City, Jim runs a race against the Sawhorse, and when one of the Wizard's Nine Tiny Piglets goes missing Eureka is put on trial. Eventually the Wizard is invited to stay in Oz, but Dorothy, Zeb, and their animals decide to return home.

Grace Duffie Boylan's 1909 children's novel Yama Yama Land shows an obvious debt to Baum's fourth Oz book.
