Overview

Three full length Tarzan books in one! The first three Tarzan novels in one eBook--for one low price--complete and unabridged. The trio of romantic adventures that made the ape man one of the most believable and fascinating characters in literary history: <I>Tarzan of the Apes; The Return of Tarzan</I>; and <I>Jungle Tales of Tarzan</I>. In <I>Tarzan of the Apes</I>, young Lord Greystoke is reared by anthropoids when his parents perish after being marooned in the African jungle. Tarzan grows to manhood learning the secrets of jungle craft, speaking only the language of the apes, believing himself an ape. Then he meets Jane Porter and her party, who have also been marooned on the jungle shore. When she flees into the jungle to escape danger, Tarzan rescues Jane, and although they do not speak the same language, they somehow learn to speak the language of love. To Jane, her idyll with the instinctively chivalrous ape man, though filled with peril and adventure, is a jungle Garden of Eden, but then Tarzan nobly returns her to her friends, convinced she would be happier married to one of her own kind. Then Tarzan disappears on a suicide mission to save one of her party captured by cannibals, and Jane is carried away against her wishes by her friends. In <I>The Return of Tarzan</I>, the ape man tries to drown his sorrows in drugs and alcohol, in dangerous living that takes him from the ballrooms of the rich to the rooftops of the poor, from the dueling fields of Paris to the killing fields of Arabian intrigue. Then, ironically, an assassination attempt by a treacherous foe leads Tarzan back to the very shores where he grew up. There, Jane too is in peril, and to save and win her, hewill have to brave the dangers of the treasure vaults of Opar, elude the snares of La, its beautiful, scheming high priestess, brave battle with the fifty frightful men, and face betrayal by his closest relative. In <I>Jungle Tales of Tarzan</I>, Burroughs recounts the jungle lord's adventures as a child and adolescent growing up among the jungle's challenges and wonders. A memorable work! All three books complete and unabridged--over 1200 pages in hardcover. Cover: J. Allen St. John circa 1920.
