Book 23 of the Tarzan® Series – Authorized by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., and Featuring Rare and Previously Unpublished Archival Materials
The drums boom forth an incredible message from tribe to tribe—Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle, has become an enemy to all, stealing and enslaving their women…as well as the daughter of an English millionaire, who offers a princely reward for her recapture and Tarzan’s death. Certainly her captor told Sandra Pickerall that he was Tarzan…but he also told her he was God…
Tarzan follows their trail with one thought in mind—to pursue and destroy the man who has stolen his name and made it infamous in the jungle world he loves.
Edgar Rice Burroughs: Master of Adventure
The creator of the immortal characters Tarzan of the Apes and John Carter of Mars, Edgar Rice Burroughs is one of the world’s most popular authors. His timeless tales of heroes and heroines transport readers from the jungles of Africa and the dead sea bottoms of Barsoom to the miles-high forests of Amtor and the savage inner world of Pellucidar, and even to alien civilizations beyond the farthest star. Mr. Burroughs’ books are estimated to have sold hundreds of millions of copies, and they have spawned 60 films and 250 television episodes.
