Description

Experience the original stories of Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan and all of his adventures in the jungle in Tarzan of the Apes and The Return of Tarzan.

Tarzan of the Apes (1912) and The Return of Tarzan (1913) recount the adventures of John Clayton, a man who was raised by apes after the death of his parents. Clayton was renamed "Tarzan" by the apes, and grew up in the wild without knowledge of his humanity. Even today, Tarzan remains a classic character who is still present in modern fiction. Both of these novels are picture perfect examples of American pulp fiction, portraying Tarzan as the quintessential strong, wild, able-bodied hero; always ready for adventure or to save those close to him.

Tarzan of the Apes and The Return of Tarzan by Race Point Publishing is elegantly designed, coming in a clothbound edition which also features an elastic closure and a new introduction by Darren Harris-Fain.

The author

Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875-1950) was an American writer, soldier, cowboy, and pencil sharpener salesman. He is best known for his Tarzan and John Carter of Mars series. However, Burroughs wrote almost 100 novels before he died of a heart attack. He is buried in the town of Tarzana, which was named after his ranch just north of Los Angeles.

Darren Harris-Fain is a professor of English at Auburn University at Montgomery. An expert on British and American literature from the late nineteenth century to the present, he regularly publishes on the American novel, science fiction and fantasy, and comics and graphic novels.
