Synopsis: The First Book of the Tarzan Series.

Deep in the savage African jungle, a stranded European couple built a homestead for thenselves and their baby Tarzan. But after the parents died, Tarzan was raised by a fierce she-ape of the tribe of Kerchak. There he had to learn the secrets of the wild to survive--how to talk with animals, swing through the trees, and fight against the great predators. He grew to the strength and courage to command the respect of not only his fellow apes, but of the other animals of the jungle as well. And in time, his human intelligence promised him the kingship of the tribe. He became truly Lord of the Jungle. Then men entered his jungle, bringing with them the wanton savagery of civilized greed and lust. And also bringing the first white woman Tarzan had ever seen. Now suddenly, Tarzan had to choose between two worlds and two kinds of life.

The entire "Tarzan of the Apes" was first published in a single issue of The All-Story (October 1912). The first hardcover edition, which was the first hardcover Burroughs' book, was printed by A.C. McClurg & Co., in 1914.

Product Description: Tarzan of the Apes is a novel written by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the first in a series of books about the title character Tarzan. It was first published in the pulp magazine All-Story Magazine in October, 1912; the first book edition was published in 1914. So popular was the character that Burroughs continued the series into the 1940s with two dozen sequels.

The novel tells the story of John Clayton, born in the western coastal jungles of equatorial Africa to a marooned couple from England, John and Alice (Rutherford) Clayton, Lord and Lady Greystoke. Adopted as an infant by the she-ape Kala after his parents died (his father is killed by the savage king ape Kerchak), Clayton is named "Tarzan" ("White Skin" in the ape language) and raised in ignorance of his human heritage. - from Wikipedia
