The "Tarzan" stories, by the famous author, Edgar Rice Burroughs, have become history to the lovers of the motion picture art.

The son of "Tarzan of the Apes", through inherited instinct and circumstances, is lured to the jungle. With his companion, Akut, a bull ape, he conquers the wild beasts, blacks and Arabs of the African wilderness and thereby gains the name of Korak, the Killer.

The youth thrives on the life of the outdoors; the companionship of the ever-faithful anthropoid and a child of the Wilds, Meriem, to whom he is devoted, gives him four fold courage. With his giant strength he keeps at bay the savages of the forest. Alone he conquers tribes of Arabs and blacks. They are beset by enemies who covet Meriem, but love for his girl-treasure gives Korak superhuman strength to defend her.

The Killer is attacked by ferocious baboons, and after a terrific struggle he subjugates them, placing Akut as their leader. With his tribe of Apes, the Ape man rescues Meriem from the savage blacks, after a murderous slaughter on both sides.

The girl is again taken prisoner by two villainous Swedes, who hold her for ransom. One of them seeks to possess her, but this attempt is frustrated by "Tarzan of the Apes", who has come to the jungle in search of his wife.

Korak is tortured at the loss of his jungle mates, and, seeking her, with his mighty strength he overcomes prowling hungry lions, fierce tigers, cannibals, venomous Arabs, and the many other horrors and perils that abound in the heart of the black country

"The Son of Tarzan" was released as a 15-chapter serial in 1921. Concurrent with its release and showing, a novelization, in serial form, was offered to newspapers around the United States. We have collected together the entire novelization and present it here for the first time.
