When fate deals a devastating blow to Tarzan and Jane's fortunes, the ape-man must once again refill their coffers from the legendary treasure vaults of Opar, forgotten outpost of lost Atlantis. There awaits the high priestess La, ready to sacrifice Tarzan upon the altar of the Flaming God for having spurned her love, even while the traitorous, half-bestial high priest of Opar schemes to usurp her rule.
Meanwhile, Jane faces her own troubles when she falls victim to the machinations of disgraced Belgian officer Lieutenant Werper and a band of ivory and slave traders. But when an earthquake strikes down Tarzan and leaves him with only the memory of his youth as an ape, how will he unravel the nefarious plot that imperils Jane's life and recover the stolen jewels of Opar?

"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.
