The only female student in Cambridge University’s medical program, Jane Porter is far more comfortable in a lab coat dissecting corpses than she is in a corset and gown sipping afternoon tea. A budding paleoanthropologist, Jane dreams of traveling the globe in search of fossils that will prove the evolutionary theories of her scientific hero, Charles Darwin.

When dashing American explorer Ral Conrath invites Jane and her father to join an expedition deep into West Africa, she can hardly believe her luck. Africa is every bit as exotic and fascinating as she has always imagined, but Jane quickly learns that the lush jungle is full of secrets—and so is Ral Conrath. When danger strikes, Jane finds her hero, the key to humanity’s past, and an all-consuming love in one extraordinary man: Tarzan of the Apes.

Jane is the first version of the Tarzan story written by a woman and authorized by the Edgar Rice Burroughs estate. Its publication marks the centennial of the original Tarzan of the Apes.

    " As a young girl I saw the movie Greystoke and love it. I've never read the real Tarzan novel but this sounded interesting from Jane's point of view. It was pretty gripping and exciting. Now I will have to read the original and of course re-watch Greystoke. "

    " Jane, darling, you are obviously incredibly intelligent, courageous, and insightful, and yet you turn to a mindless blob of jelly when a handsome, "virile" man pays attention to you. Seriously, authors, I'm tired of this hackneyed theme. Where are the women who grow to be strong and stay strong, even when a man enters the picture? I had such high hopes for this book, but I just couldn't finish it. "

    " Though familiar with the Tarzan story from films, I have not read any of the Edgar Rice Burroughs stories. I believe I may have to remedy this situation. I thoroughly enjoyed this story from Jane Porter's perspective "

    " It seemed a rather large coincidence that a "budding paleoanthropologist" just happens to run into Tarzan who is essentially raised in a group that would fit into the "missing link" category. I got a bit more than half way before putting this one down. It got a little too weird and unrealistic. Also, I skipped over a couple romance paragraphs that got into it a little more than my comfort zone (which also added to my decision to give up reading). Oh- and Jane is a little too heavy in the whole feminist thing in the beginning. "
