Orphaned and abandoned in the depths of the African jungle, a young boy is found and raised by a loving female ape. Destined to be the king of the apes, Tarzan thrives among his adoptive family, but will he ever be able to feel at home in the wild?
Tarzan of the Apes is the first book in Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic pulp fiction series. Join Tarzan as he grows from a young, lost little boy into the powerful king of the jungle. As he ages and begins to realise the differences between himself and his family, Tarzan grows distant from the apes and begins to explore the jungle by himself. Discovering his parents’ old hut, he arms himself with his father’s knife and suddenly the animals of the jungle are no match for him.
But as the powerful ape man conquers his wild home, he longs to connect with someone who truly understands him. When a group of humans are marooned in his jungle, will Tarzan finally reach a place he can call home?
First published in October 1912 in the pulp magazine The All-Story, Tarzan of the Apes was released as a novel in 1914 and has had many successful screen adaptations. This volume is the perfect read for fans of fantasy novels who want to revisit a childhood classic.
