Item Details

Random House, Inc.
The first and best of the Tarzan novels, of which Edgar Rice Burroughs eventually wrote several dozen, Tarzan of the Apes remains one of the signature stories of American popular literature, as readable as it is famous. Tarzan himself, in the words of Arthur C. Clarke, is “the best known character in the whole of fiction.” As John Taliaferro asserts in his Introduction to this Modern Library Paperback Classic, “There is no question that [Tarzan of the Apes] is one of the most entertaining and exemplary books of the last century. . . . [It] is not merely a story from a bygone era; it is a tale as old as time, and for all time, too.”

Baker & Taylor
An English boy raised by a community of apes in the jungles of Africa encounters other human beings for the first time.

I was thoroughly surprise at how captivating this book was. I've only known the Disney version of the book, so this version was definitely a surprise. The story brings you back to childhood and is a definite MUST READ!!

" 'The could be but one suitable reply to your assertion, Mr. Clayton,' she said icily, 'and I regret that I am not a man, that I might make it.' She turned quickly and entered the cabin. Clayton was an Englishman, so the girl had passed quite out of sight before he deduced what reply a man would have made. 'Upon my word,' he said ruefully, 'she called me a liar. And I fancy I jolly well deserved it,' he added thoughtfully. "
