The story that launched a thousand movies, TV shows, and plays! A mutiny on board their ship leaves Lord and Lady Greystoke stranded on a desolate African beach with their newborn son. Soon after, the aristocratic couple perishes, leaving the boy an orphan--until the she-ape Kala rescues the infant, names him Tarzan (white skin), and raises him as one of her own. As he grows, Tarzan schools himself in the ways of both man and beast and rises to become king of the jungle. But when he falls in love with Jane Porter, a beautiful American explorer, he is forced to choose between the two very different worlds.

In Tarzan of the Apes, our hero is brought to life. From birth to his introduction into civilization, we grow to know a man of epic moral stature. Tarzan battles his own animalistic tendencies, overcomes beasts of the jungle and the city alike, and pines for the love of the kind-hearted and fiery Jane Porter. Using such a unique perspective, Burroughs reintroduces us to the contradictions, appeals, and downfalls of humanity in all its diversity in the context of an adventurous tale destined to be one of the greatest science fiction novels of all time.
It is highly recommended to read at least the first three books.

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. "
