Publisher's Summary

John Clayton III, an orphan boy, comes of age in the western coastal jungles of Africa following the tragic deaths of his aristocratic parents. Raised in the ways of the apes by his adoptive mother, Kala, he is renamed Tarzan and ascends to king through feats of revenge and courage.

When a group of explorers brings the beautiful Jane Porter to the jungle, a lovelorn Tarzan decides to follow her to the United States to win her love. On his journey back into human society, Tarzan must decide whether to return to the jungle or reclaim his past.

Fast-paced and suspenseful, Tarzan of the Apes was wildly successful and generated two dozen sequels; and many film, radio, and comic-book adaptations.

What a great adventure!

For anyone whose only knowledge of "Tarzan of the Apes" is of the "me Tarzan, you Jane" variety, you know nothing of the story.
From his parents being left in the jungle where no men, black or white, have been to his life from infancy to adulthood with the anthropoid apes and then to the arrival of his own kind, the story leaves you on the edge of your seat. With great attention to detail, the descriptions make you feel as though you are right there with the characters. No movie has ever done it justice.
The narrator brings this book to life. He does a fantastic job switching from English, American, Southern and French accents, whether male or female.
I highly recommend the Audible version of this book.
