When Tarzan is orphaned as a baby deep in the African jungle, he is saved from certain death when he is adopted by a she-ape. Raised as one of her own, Tarzan learns the way of the Kerchak—the tribe of great apes who rule the jungle. They teach him how to survive, to hunt, to swing through the trees, and to communicate with the other animals of the jungle. By the time he is a young man Tarzan has the courage and strength of ten men. But it is his human brain that allows him to be the King of the Apes and Lord of the Jungle. But when his jungle domain is disturbed by the arrival of “civilized” men, Tarzan begins to wonder about his true identity.

    " I believe that 'Tarzan of the Apes' was originally written as a magazine serial and it reads that way. Limited space of a periodical made the story depend a lot on random chance to make it move quickly. Still, I'm glad I read it. "

    " NOT like the movies. Those glossed over much of what this book tackles head on. Like "She," it is a product of its time. "

    " Geez, no wonder we had generations of people who had (have) misconceptions about the great apes! This book is one big misconception... Reading Edgar Rice Burroughs is very eye-opening, and I highly recommend it to anyone concerned about society's evolving attitudes on wildlife issues. "
