This is the third story in the TARZAN adventure series. This venture into the wild kingdom thrusts Jane into the thickest of demoniacal plots as Tarzan’s nemesis, the dark and swarthy Rokoff and his rat-like lieutenant capture her with the intention of wreaking vengeance on Tarzan. But Tarzan assembles an awesome rescue squad; Mugambi, a giant native from the jungle who becomes the devoted follower and protector of Tarzan; Sheeta, a sleek and powerful black panther longing to apply fang and claw to those who would harm Jane; and the entire tribe of Akut, of the great apes, enraged and eager.

    " If you've seen the movie Taken or any of those "I must rescue my wife and child!!!!!" movies, you've read this book. But you should read this book anyway, because when it's Tarzan, it's brutal! This is when Tarzan starts to get good, but stick with it, the series gets EVEN BETTER. "

    " Grade C. Book T3. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miranda | 1/13/2014

    " I liked book 3 better than book 2, as the focus was Tarzan in the jungle rather than Tarzan in civilization. I could see this being a great movie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keith | 1/2/2014

    " A wonderful story from 1914. Typical evil villians, jungle adventure, helpful animals, etc.. His family is kidnapped and needs rescue in this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kylene | 12/15/2013

    " Quick read on my Droid. The story had more adventure and was even more far-fetched than the last 2. Still, a good read and end to the loose ends of the last 2 books. I will probably stop reading the series with this one as I've heard the following are more geared to young boys. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rob | 12/3/2013

    " The best of the Tarzan series "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tobias | 12/2/2013

    " This third book in the series was, in my opinion, a pretty far fall from the first two. Written pretty badly overall (with scattered bright spots), I felt keenly aware of a tight writing schedule, not much editing, and a rush to finish the story within the page limit imposed by the serial mags. I still plowed through, though, needing to know how it turned out. And now I have to read the next one too, else wonder forever... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emma | 11/29/2013

    " The writing was quite repetitive and unchanging from the first two books. The plot was good, but it lacked the help of dynamic writing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nathan | 11/23/2013

    " 'Guilty pleasure' reading "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brianna | 10/26/2013

    " A little more bloodthirsty than I was expecting, but still a good story. Jane became a little more awesome in this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Uriah | 10/26/2013

    " Good adventure story. Dated views of the world. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Samuel | 9/20/2013

    " By this time, the story was starting to seem very formulaic. Can anyone tell me if the subsequent stories venture into new territory? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Larry | 7/27/2013

    " Even better than "The Return of Tarzan". Very fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kevin | 2/6/2013

    " I have read this series multiple times and still enjoy it almost as much as I did when I was twelve. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heidi | 1/16/2013

    " 1916 publication date...once you get that you're there. Apes as companions and a "pet" cat who eats bad guys (my cats only THINK they can). It is always interesting to read a book from another era...I enjoyed the adventure even tho I cringed a bit at some of the attitudes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greg | 8/3/2012

    " A young teen classic...bet it (or others by Burroughs) aren't read much any more. Too bad. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristy | 8/1/2012

    " Absolutely fantastic!! This is my favorite of the series so far...the storyline is great, the action is grand, Tarzan is awesome. :P "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hilarie | 4/27/2012

    " I really liked learning more about Jane in this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aaron | 2/22/2012

    " Boy, these are kind of addictive. Especially downloaded for from Project Gutenberg. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marcia | 1/1/2012

    " yeah...got lazy about bringing a book on travel so I started reading more Tarzan. More peril, more evil Russians stealing away Jane...it passes the time but I am ready for a different type of book now "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Charles | 7/6/2011

    " Tarzan spends some time in civilization and I never did think those were the best stories. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zinger | 6/21/2011

    " Fun quick books, I guess that's why I read another one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Superilla | 4/2/2011

    " Unfortunately, this book lacks so much of the adventure, intrigue and all-around fun of the first two installments, but it's a necessary segment to understand Son of Tarzan, which I'm half-through, and is excellent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristy | 3/15/2011

    " Absolutely fantastic!! This is my favorite of the series so far...the storyline is great, the action is grand, Tarzan is awesome. :P "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mindy | 6/4/2010

    " Again, I enjoyed reading this one. The whole series is completely improbable, but I think that is what I like about them. I don't take the story too seriously. I just let my imagination have fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miranda | 2/4/2010

About the Author

Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875–1950), born in Chicago, was educated at Michigan Military Academy and served briefly in the US Cavalry. He began writing while working as a pencil-sharpener salesman, publishing his first piece in 1912 to great success. He authored numerous science fiction and fantasy series but is most famous for his Tarzan books; the suburb of Los Angeles where he lived eventually became known as Tarzana.

About the Narrator

James Oliver Curwood (1878–1927) was born in Owosso, Michigan, where he lived for most of his life. He studied journalism at the University of Michigan, and in 1900 he left the university and married Cora Leon Johnson. This was also the year he sold his first story, “Across the Range,” for five dollars. He went to work for the Detroit News-Tribune covering funerals and for a pharmaceutical company until he was able to support himself through his writing. In 1909 Curwood divorced Cora and married Ethel Greenwood. That was also the year he took his first trip into the Canadian Northwest and thereafter would spend up to six months each year in the arctic wilderness. This was where he set some of his most successful books. Over his lifetime, Curwood wrote over thirty books. Among them were The Grizzly King, The Wolf Hunters, The Alaskan, The Country Beyond, and Son of the Forests.
