In its pages we find Tarzan's origins: how he is orphaned after his parents are marooned and killed on the coast of West Africa, and is adopted by an ape-mother. He grows up to become a model of physical strength and natural prowess, and eventually leader of his tribe. When he encounters a group of white Europeans, and rescues Jane Porter from a marauding ape, he finds love, and must choose between the values of the jungle and civilization. The Tarzan of popular imagination bears only limited resemblance to Edgar Rice Burroughs's creation, and the complex backdrop of colonial appropriation, literary heritage, and nostalgic yearning from which he emerged. This new edition considers these contexts, as well as the enduring appeal of the King of the Apes.Hide synopsis

What can you say about a book that created a genre? With his first Tarzan novel, Edgar Rice Burroughs invented the jungle-man hero, now a science-fantasy staple, and started a franchise that is still going strong. This introduction to Tarzan is still tops, giving the origin of the ape-man in a ripping action yarn that thrills as much today as when it was new. Often imitated, but never duplicated.
