Abandoned to his fate when his English parents die in the African jungle, a baby boy is rescued and reared by a loving ape foster mother.
Conquering the savage laws of the wilderness, Tarzan grows into a mighty warrior and becomes leader of his tribe of apes until he encounters, for the first time, his own kind - humans.
An expedition of white treasure hunters has entered his jungle kingdom, accompanied by the beautiful Jane Porter.

But will the charms of this charming and cultured young woman overcome when the spirit of his wild nature beckons?

Review by twiglet12
Enjoyed the story and the character of Tarzan but found the narrative voices’ racism a bit hard to stomach. A product of its time no doubt.
