The Return of Tarzan by Edgar Rice Burroughs contains even more adventure, romance and enthralling action than Tarzan of the Apes.

About The Author:
John Taliaferro is the author of Tarzan Forever: The Life of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Creator of Tarzan and Great White Fathers: The Story of the Obsessive Quest to Create Mount Rushmore. He lives in Texas and Montana.
Edgar Rice Burroughs's epic story of love and adventure is well-adapted here for the young reader, leaving intact much of the author's original prose and the book's narrative structure. With the strength of a beast and the grace of an athlete, Tarzan of the Apes has risen to become the king of the animals. His life changes, when he spies a young woman, Jane Porter, among a crew of stranded treasure hunters. Tarzan falls deeply in love with Jane, and his quest for her brings him into contact with unfamiliar human civilization.
Crowded with impossibilities as the tale is, Mr. Burroughs has told it so well, and has so succeeded in carrying his readers with him, that there are few who will not look forward eagerly to the promised sequel. --New York Times review, May 1915; Books of the Century
