A beautifully produced omnibus of the first six Tarzan novels, with foreword by Andy Briggs and illustrations from the Burroughs archive
Here for the first time in one place are the earliest tales of one of the best-known creations of 20th-century fiction—Tarzan of the Apes, The Return of Tarzan, The Beasts of Tarzan, The Son of Tarzan, Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar, and Jungle Tales of Tarzan. Abandoned to his fate when his English parents die in the African jungle, a baby boy is rescued and reared by a loving ape foster mother. Conquering the savage laws of the wilderness, Tarzan grows into a mighty warrior and becomes leader of his tribe of apes until he encounters, for the first time, his own kind—humans. An expedition of white treasure hunters has entered his jungle kingdom, accompanied by the beautiful Jane Porter. Tarzan's primitive heart is struck, and he determines to become civilized in order to win her. But will the charms of this cultured young woman overcome when the spirit of his wild nature beckons?
