A white child of noble lineage brought up by a tribe of gigantic anthropoid apes and becoming, by virtue of his fighting ability and superior mentality, King of the tribe and Master of the Jungle. Such was Tarzan, the most popular character in fiction today, as introduced to the public in "Tarzan of the Apes."
A sequel to "Tarzan of the Apes." It deals in its opening chapters with the young giant of the jungle in civilization, meeting wherever he goes with adventures as strange and thrilling as those of his boyhood in the primeval forests. Then it tells of Tarzan's return to the tropical wilderness and of his astounding adventures with ferocious animals and savage native tribes.
Another great jungle yarn. Tarzan's wife and child are abducted by his enemies. He follows them to Wildest Africa and, with a yell and a bound, is back at home again among the beasts of the jungle, plunging into a series of adventures, so startling, exciting, and hair-raising that one gasps with astonishment.
Tarzan's son inherits his father's love of the jungle and by an extraordinary combination of circumstances is taken to the African Wilderness. The lore of the jungle came easily to him; he battles mightily with Numa, the Lion, with Hista, the Snake, with crafty savages and slave traders till there is no one greater in the forest than Korak (the Killer), son of Tarzan.
A PRINCESS OF MARS
EDGAR RICE BURROUGHS
An absorbing tale of adventure and romance forty-three million miles from Earth. It is hardly too much to say it is the boldest piece of imaginative fiction in this generation.
John Carter, American, goes to sleep in a mysterious cave in the Arizona desert and when he wakes up finds himself on the planet Mars. There he meets with a succession of weird and astounding adventures, told in that fascinating and realistic way that makes Burroughs easily the foremost romanticist of his time.
Think for a moment of this young American battling for a woman, beautiful as a houri, with the Green Men of Mars, creatures fifteen feet high, and of fearsome aspect, with two extra limbs, which will function either as legs or arms, mounted on horses like dragons, and attended by watch-dogs like enormous frogs with ten legs, and you can get some idea of the thrills in the yarn.
Only the man who created Tarzan, The Ape Man, could write so bold a story.
