Read full description of the books Tarzan of the Apes/The Return of Tarzan:Few fictional characters hold as firm a place in our culture as Tarzan. His popularly received debut in a magazine story in 1912 led to a book-length appearance in Tarzan of the Apes and its sequel, The Return of Tarzan. The two books make up a single extended narrative, taking Tarzan from his earliest days as an orphaned child of aristocrats who, adopted and raised by great apes, becomes ruler of his savage domain. Born the son of an aristocrat, Tarzan's natural nobility soon becomes evident, for he easily gains fluency in both French and English, and eventually gains recognition in the drawing rooms of England and America as John Clayton, Lord Greystoke. Of course Tarzan's story is incomplete without Jane—the lovely Jane Porter who, though betrothed to another, cannot help giving Tarzan her heart. Yet these two cannot exchange eternal vows before hundreds of delicious pages of some of the most colorful adventures in popular literature, filled with violence, romance, separation, pursuit, treachery, vengeance, and reunion, and including the rediscovery of the legendary Lost City of Opar and its fabulous treasure. The nearly thirty novels in which Tarzan appears are reported to have sold more than 25 million copies in over fifty languages, and the Lord of the Jungle has been featured in countless movies, radio and television adaptations. And here is where the adventure begins...
