Summary:

In this, the continuing adventure of Tarzan the ape-man, Tarzan has given up his jungle ways and is living contentedly on a farm with his beloved wife as a wealthy member of British nobility. But when he returns one day from a trip to Nairobi, he finds his farm has been laid waste and no one left alive on it. In grief and rage, he casts off the veneer of civilization to become once again the primitive ape-man, ranging the country in search of those who killed his mate to mete out to them the vengeance of the jungle.

“The Tarzan legend returns us to that Eden where, free of clothes and the inhibitions of a repressive society, a man is able, as William Faulkner put it, to prevail as well as endure.”—Gore Vidal

    Don't get me wrong, I am a big fan of ERB. This book though, tested my resolve. It seems to me that the story was meant originally in serial form and so it comes and goes in spurts. We are led through a series of coincidences so far fetched that makes the John Carter books seem non-fictional. Some of the olde English colonial language is a bit putting off also. However, if you ever wanted to know ERB's opinion regarding imperialistic Germany, this is your book.
