Dover Publications Tarzan of the Apes

This unabridged classic adventure novel (1914) tells of an aristocratic English infant, abandoned in the jungle, who is reared by apes. Riveting encounters with man-eating beasts, Tarzan's love affair with the beautiful Jane Porter, and buried treasure make Tarzan of the Apes original, exotic, and highly readable. 224 pages, softcover.

Hollywood has done such a hack job on this; you can forget how intelligent a writer Edgar Rice Burroughs was. I was never a fan of the whole "Tarzan" idea, but my boys sure loved the story. They think all Tarzan movies are ridiculous now that they have read this.
