you are looking for some over the top pulp action, however, this book aims to please. The premises take place after “The Return of Tarzan” where we find, Tarzan now as Lord Greystoke -is settling down in civilized London. However, his old enemies Nikolas Rokoff and henchman Alexis Paulvitch are still on his heel. They kidnap his only wife, Jane and son, Jack and left Tarzan in a stranded island. As always Tarzen used his dexterity and primal aptitude with the help of a tribe of Gorillaz led by clever Akut, a vicious panther Sheeta and Mugambi, giant chief of the Wagambi tribe. Finally, Tarzen reached the mainland and finds Jane who was planning her own escape from the kidnappers. The group confronts the kidnappers and Tarzan unleashes his vengeance. The irony here is Tarzan had come from the jungle into civilization, and his son was taken from civilization into the wilderness.

Burroughs basically targeted pulp fiction and has his first story the Moons of Mars, serialized by Frank Munsey in the February to July 1912 issues of The All-Story and used the pseudo name Norman Bean. Intending his work at the pulps, Burroughs had his first story, Under the Moons of Mars, serialized by Frank Munsey in the February to July 1912 issues of The All-Story. He was one of the best known and prolific writers in American history in the adventure and science-fiction genres. Among the most remarkable of his creations are the jungle hero Tarzan, the Mars hero John Carter, and the fictional landmass within Earth known as Pellucidar.
