It is a good novel but I always tell people to start with the first 5 books of this series. Without the basic Tarzan, the latter stories would not make sense.

Edgar Rice Burroughs. Chapter One. Tantor the Elephant. The leaves of the forest drowsed in the heat above the heads of the hunters

Edgar Rice Burroughs. The leaves of the forest drowsed in the heat above the heads of the hunters. Beneath the drowsing leaves of other trees a stone's throw ahead of them Tarzan and Tantor slept, their perceptive faculties momentarily dulled by the soothing influence of fancied security and the somnolence that is a corollary of equatorial midday. Fejjuan, the Galla slave, halted in his tracks, stopping those behind him by the silent mandate of an upraised hand.

Edgar Rice Burroughs (September 1, 1875 – March 19, 1950) was an American fiction writer best known for his celebrated and prolific output in the adventure and science-fiction genres. Among the most notable of his creations are the jungle hero Tarzan, the heroic Mars adventurer John Carter, and the fictional landmass within Earth known as Pellucidar. Burroughs' California ranch is now the center of the Tarzana neighborhood in Los Angeles.

Then Tarzan took up again the pursuit of Rokoff. Now that he waspositive that the woman ahead of him was indeed Jane, and that she hadagain fallen into the hands of the Russian, it seemed that with all theincredible speed of his fleet and agile muscles he moved at but asnail's pace. It was with difficulty that he kept the trail, for there were manypaths through the jungle at this point-crossing and crisscrossing,forking and branching in all directions, and over them all had passednatives innumerable, coming and going.

Edgar Rice Burroughs fell into sort of a pattern with his secondary character who falls in love with girl from a lost . One of the highlights of the later Tarzan books. We are reminded of Tarzan, or rather Lord Greystoke's pedigree as he encounters an outpost of medieval English knights.

Edgar Rice Burroughs fell into sort of a pattern with his secondary character who falls in love with girl from a lost civilization, but I really didn't mind. It was fun seeing the medieval era.

I lost this book during a move. I like collecting books and Edgar Rice Burroughs is one of my favorite authors. It is a good novel but I always tell people to start with the first 5 books of this series. Without the basic Tarzan, the latter stories would not make sense. But "Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle" is a good read when you get to know him.

I decided to try reading the TARZAN books on my Kindle and read them in order. I am so glad I did!
They are full of adventure, excitement and you care what happens to the characters in the depth of dark and dangerous Africa.

If you have missed this series of books give them a try!

My Wife and I both love to read. So, Amazon was the answer! I bought a Kindle for my wife (She now has 2) and I buy all the Hardbacks (Real old school)as the mood carries me. I found the missing editions of books that I was reading in the 60’s and when I Find a new author I can get all the back issues at great prices.

Tarzan has a run in with beduin raiders early on in the story.They fail in their attempt to murder him.They will rue the decision.The beduins are on a raid to loot the treasures of Nimmr a midevil castle in a remote valley in Africa inhabited by The Knights of Nimmr and Seplucher.We learn Prince Gobred of Nimmr is a good chap.Young King Bohun of the Seplucher is a man whom appears to have little honor much to the consternation of several of his own valiant Knights.

A safari has also entered Tarzans domain without his permission and he has a run in with them as well.Wilbur Stimbol is a rich blowhard in the Trump mold. James Blake is a twenty something playboy twenty years younger than Stimbol.The two have a falling out over Stimbols brutal treatment of the native porters.Tarzan orders Stimbol out of his country making an enemy of the old rascal.Stimbol later is taken in by the beduins and is involved in a plot to slay Tarzan.

While on safari tragedy befalls Blake and he is captured by the beave men of Nimmr.He is soon taken in to their society of Brave Knights and is accepted by all but one jealous would be suitor of Gobreds lovely daughter Princess Guinalda.Blake is the perfect depiction of a midevil Sir Knight with the exception of the .45 Colt automatic he wears about his waist.

At the great Tourney where Nimmr and Seplucher Knights compete for prizes of horses,weapons,armor and lovely maidens something goes wrong.The treachorous Bohun steals Guinalda and ride off toward his castle.At the same time the beduins strike.Also at this time Tarzan enters the valley in search of Blake.Tarzans rank of Lord endears him to these men.Soon Tarzans courage and great strength make him a legend amongst these warriors.

The novel follows the pattern set by ERB but I think it will be enjoyed by the fans of Tarzan and midevil enthusiasts.Know this is not the cave man Tarzan of the horrible movies and even more worse Disney cartoon.Tarzan of the novels is an articulate and chivalrous man of mythic proportions.Also keep in mind the story was written over seventy five years ago so it is not PC.

Burroughs wrote a lot of formulaic books, and there is no question this is one of them. He was quite fond of having Tarzan come across lost civilizations with two competing city-states, befriending nobles on both sides, and after much confusion and danger, bringing both sides together.

Many of the books with this formula use ancient Greek/Roman styles of cultures, but in this one Burroughs imagines a valley peopled by a lost expedition of the Crusades, so English Knights and their support staff have lived in a valley for hundreds of years, thriving but out of touch and out of date.

Burroughs introduces a young American character in this effort, James Blake. Blake is the first into the lost valley, and has the most contact with the Crusaders. This was a device Burroughs used many times to introduce romance into his books, as Tarzan couldn't be getting into any affairs of the heart and thus betray Jane!

Of course, the normal complex circuit of lost and endangered characters is present here, as there is another (bad) American, a Bedouin tribe intent on looting the lost city of Crusaders, young Arab lovers separated, and African tribesmen galore.

It has been a while since I read my last Tarzan book, which helps out. If you read too many back to back you tend to get tired of the formula. But if you take a rest between reads, the stories seem much more fresh. The same is true with Burroughs other series, such as the Mars series.

I found this to be quite a fun read, and can definitely recommend the book.

More of the adventures of Tarzan. I won't duplicate what other reviewers said. This time he's among yet another lost civilization, with blood feuds and jousts, and of course our hero needs to reach deep to make it through. I guess there were a lot of isolated communities in the Africa of ERB's imagination. Having said that, ERB never visited Africa before writing these. He was, however, in the 7th Cav, in Arizona, which is Apache country. Tarzan is an Apache Scout, through the lens of a Victorian writer. This is great armchair adventure. If you want to go a little further, allow me to suggest Journey to the Ancestral Self: The Native Lifeway Guide to Living in Harmony with the Earth Mother (Bk.1),The Tracker,Path Notes of an American Ninja Master,The Art of Chi Kung: Making the Most of Your Vital Energy,Chi Kung: Way of Power, and House of Shattering Light: Life as an American Indian Mystic. These will all get you started on understanding more of what Tarzan would have had to be, had he existed in the flesh. I note related books because that is the most useful part of a review for me. I have found gems that way. I encourage others to do likewise.
