About This Book


Without his animal strength and human intelligence, Tarzan of the Apes would many times have been a dead man. Orphaned in infancy, Tarzan is adopted by a female ape who has just lost her own baby. Against all odds, he survives and learns the ways of the great apes. But Tarzan is different from the apes, and he knows this more with each passing day. Then he comes face-to-face with a beautiful woman named Jane, and, more than ever, he wonders just who the real Tarzan is.
