Two connected novellas make up an exciting Tarzan adventure. The first novella brings him to warring tribes of warrior women, each tribe with their own wizard. In the 2nd, Tarzan returns to the warring cities of Athne & Cathne. ( )

Tarzan attempts to find the daughter of a long-dead explorer, and makes his way to two tribes of warrior women, who lure men into slavery with the hypnotic power of a gigantic emerald and diamond that the two tribes control. ( )

Two tribes of frightful warrior women, the Kaji and the Zuli, war with one another for possession of the men they lure into slavery. Their mysterious hypnotic power comes from the magnificent gems they worship – an emerald and a diamond, each as big as a human head. Will the Lord of the Jungle be immune to the strange power of the Kaji and the Zuli?
