This collection of the last eight Tarzan novels is as exciting as the previous collections. It’s nothing like the old movies. Tarzan is far more savage and true to the nature of the jungle. Formatted specifically for the NOOK with an interactive table of contents, this volume contains the following unabridged, original novels:
TARZAN AND THE CITY OF GOLD
Tarzan ends up in the hidden city of Cathne. The queen, Nemone, falls in love with Tarzan. When he won't reciprocate, she feeds him to the lions.
TARZAN AND THE LION MAN
Tarzan and his lion companion Jad-bal-ja discover a mad scientist with a city of talking gorillas. To create additional havoc, a Hollywood film crew sets out to shoot a Tarzan movie in Africa and brings along an actor who is an exact double of the ape-man, but is his opposite in courage and determination.
TARZAN AND THE LEOPARD MEN
An amnesiac Tarzan and his monkey companion Nkima are taken by an African warrior to be his guardian spirits, and as such come into conflict with the murderous secret society of the Leopard Men.
Tarzan's wife Jane (her first appearance since Tarzan and the Ant Men and also her last as a major character in the series), becomes involved in a search for a bloodthirsty lost tribe reputed to possess an immortality drug. Also drawn in are Tarzan and his monkey companion, little Nkima, and Chief Muviro and his faithful Waziri warriors, who are searching for Muviro's lost daughter Buira.
TARZAN THE MAGNIFICENT
This novel is actually a combination of two stories. In TARZAN AND THE MAGIC MEN, Tarzan encounters a lost race with uncanny mental powers. After, in TARZAN AND THE ELEPHANT MEN, he revisits the lost cities of Cathne and Athne, previously encountered in the earlier novel Tarzan and the City of Gold. As usual, he is backed up by Chief Muviro and his faithful Waziri warriors.
TARZAN AND THE FORBIDDEN CITY

His father and sister want to go rescue him, and they can only enlist Tarzan's help because they know Captain Paul d`Arnot. By chance, Tarzan and Brian are exact lookalikes, thus leading some bad guys to think Tarzan is Brian. The bad guys are also heading out to find the diamond. The Forbidden City is in a secret valley, with two other cities Ashair and Thobos, who are at war over of the Father of Diamonds.
TARZAN AND THE CASTAWAYS

TARZAN AND “THE FOREIGN LEGION”
While serving in the R.A.F. under his civilian name of John Clayton, Tarzan is shot down over the island of Sumatra in the Japanese-occupied Dutch East Indies. He uses his jungle survival skills to save his comrades in arms, and they fight the Japanese while seeking escape from enemy territory.
