Farmer did an excellent job of staying true to ERB's Tarzan, not an easy task once you have been poisoned by the numbskill of the movies. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0345424638, Mass Market Paperback)

At last--after decades--one of the most famous heroes in literature is back! Tarzan, Lord of the Apes, returns with a vengeance in this brand-new, action-packed adventure by Philip José Farmer, Hugo Award-winning author of the incredible Riverworld saga.

Tarzan's beloved mate, Jane, has been kidnapped, and the furious ape-man will let nothing stand in the way of rescuing her--not even a sinister safari whose target is Tarzan himself. With fierce Masai trackers leading the chase, a trio of white hunters are hellbent on capturing the Jungle Lord. But as the pursuers, and their uncanny half-human tracker, close in from behind, Tarzan races toward even greater danger ahead.

For the trail leads to a bizarre, long-forgotten land boasting a multitude of strange and terrifying mysteries: the City Built by God, the Hideous Hunter, the One to Avoid, and most shocking of all, the Crystal Tree of Time--whose seductive powers could ultimately spell Tarzan's doom . . .

Philip José Farmer, a descendant of the actual Greystoke family, is famous for his adventure novels starring Tarzan characters. Now, for the first time, he lends his vast imagination to the authorized legend of the Lord of the Apes himself!
