Even more thrilling than Tarzan of the Apes is the sequel, The Return of Tarzan. Combine the uncanny mystery of Conan Doyle, the vivid imagination of H. G. Wells, and the thrill of Rider Haggard’s stories and you’ll know why Tarzan has proved to be one of the most sensational figures in fiction. 

Tarzan had renounced his right to the woman he loved, and civilization held no pleasure for him. After a brief and harrowing period among men, he had turned back to the African jungle where he had grown to manhood—a world he understood. It was there that he first heard of Opar, the city of gold, a relic of the fabled Atlantis.

It was a city of hideous men and of beautiful, savage women, a city ruled by La, high priestess of the Flaming God. Its altars were stained with the blood of many sacrifices. Heedless of the dangers, Tarzan led a band of savage warriors toward the ancient crypts—and even more ancient evil—of Opar.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This is a wonderful story that binds Tarzan eternally with Jane Porter and introduces the fabled city of Opar. [Simon Vance’s] reading is nearly perfect, giving the story an air that is gallantly Victorian while intensely exciting.”


  • “Crowded with impossibilities as the tale is, Mr. Burroughs has told it so well, and has so succeeded in carrying his readers with him, that there are few who will not look forward eagerly to the promised sequel.”

    New York Times

    " Enjoyed. More of the same in the first book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Frode | 2/7/2014

    " Classic Burroughs: sterotypical characters, constant action, random but dated cultural comment, incredulous last minute resolutions to extreme problems, improbable coincidental circumstances, but still fun to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Marilyn | 2/5/2014

    " I love his writing style. It's light and impossible enough that you're not stressed out for the characters, but you're interested to see how they are going to get out of their messes. A couple of dark chapters in this one. Every chapter end is a cliffhanger. Cool plot twists. Many different subplots going on (Dan Brown style) and just when you're dying to see how it works out, the chapter ends and it's time to go over to some other set of characters and their story. This has been a lot of fun. A nice break from parenting books. "

    " A tremendous adventure story. Thoroughly enjoyable and exciting! "
