Fate favours the infant son of John and Alice Clayton when he is found and adopted by a female ape after the death of his parents in Africa. Growing up, Tarzan, as he is known, becomes a skilled hunter and the protector of animals from the local tribe. But the arrival of a new party of white people sets off an unexpected chain of events that leads Tarzan to learn his true ancestry and fall in love with the first white woman he has ever met - Jane Porter. Will his love for Jane lead to Tarzan claiming his rightful place in society, or will he renounce his heritage to remain as Lord of the Jungle? Edgar Rice Burroughs' classic tale was originally published in All-Story Magazine in 1912. It became so popular that Borroughs wrote a further two dozen stories about Tarzan. - From the back cover.
