Editorial Reviews


Tarzan loves Jane, but she has promised to marry another. Heartsick and lonely, Tarzan sails to Paris to learn the ways of civilization from his friend D'Arnot. On board ship--and later in the cafes and streets of Paris--he learns that the jungle is not the only place where savage beasts dwell. Before setting foot on French soil, Tarzan is caught up in a whirlwind of blackmail, attempted murder, kidnapping, and the intrigues of desperate men and beautiful women. When a secret mission takes him back to Africa, he struggles with a decision: Can he stay in the world of the woman he has loved and lost? Or does destiny call him back to his original African home? --From the Publisher

By Man of La Book on December 28, 2012
Format: Paperback
The Return of Tarzan by Edgar Rice Bur­roughs is the sec­ond novel in about the Lord of the Jun­gle. As its pre­de­ces­sor, the book was first pub­lished in a pulp mag­a­zine dur­ing 1913 and only later pub­lished in book for­mat (1915).

The novel starts where Tarzan of the Apes ended, the ape man is recov­er­ing from his sac­ri­fice at mar­riage to Jane Porter and goes to visit Paul d'Arnot in France. On the ship Tarzan becomes involved in the affairs of Count­ess Olga de Coude and her hus­band, Count Raoul de Coude while two peo­ple try to prey on them.

The two are Niko­las Rokoff and Alexis Paul­vitch and, as it turns out, Rokoff is the Count­ess' no-good brother. Tarzan denies the vil­lains their scheme at every turn. In return, the Count finds Tarzan a job as a spe­cial agent in Alge­ria with the min­istry of war. After some adven­tures, Tarzan sails to Cape Town and finds that Hazel Strong, Jane's friend, is one of the pas­sen­gers. How­ever, Rokoff and Paulovitch are also there and man­age to throw him overboard.

Some­how Tarzan man­ages to swim ashore to find him­self in the coastal jun­gle where he was brought up. This time Tarzan ins smarter and befriends Busuli of the Waziri tribe which adopts him. Tarzan help the vil­lagers defend them­selves against ivory raiders and they elect him to replace their chief. The Waziri tell Tarzan where they obtain their gold, a lost city inhab­ited by beast-like men. The tribe takes Tarzan to the lost city where he is cap­tured and con­demned to be sac­ri­ficed to the sun god. The priest­ess is a beau­ti­ful woman named La, she speaks the lan­guage of the apes and tell Tarzan he is on the city of Opar.

Will Tarzan escape?
Will Jane marry Clay­ton?
Will Rokoff get away with his evil schemes?
