The Beasts of Tarzan
Edgar Rice Burroughs Authorized LibraryAfter settling at their London estate as Lord and Lady Greystoke, Tarzan and Jane find their contentment shattered by the ape-man's former enemies, the Russian spies Nikolas Rokoff and Alexis Paulvitch. Bent on revenge, the two villians kidnap Jane and the couple's infant son Jack, stranding Tarzan naked and alone on a remote jungle island while fleeing to the African interior.
Tarzan's savage nature reemerges as he recruits Sheeta the panther, Akut and his tribe of great apes, and the mighty warrior Mugambi to pursue the criminals up the Ugambi River into the heart of the jungle, where cannibal tribes hold sway and his desperate adversaries pursue their cruel vendetta.

"edgar rice burroughs was, and is, the most influential writer, bar none, of our century." —ray bradbury
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.
