Deep in the savage African jungle, the baby Tarzan was raised by a fierce she-ape of the tribe of Kerchack. 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 of his fellow apes. 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 bringing also the first white woman Tarzan has ever seen. Now suddenly, Tarzan had to choose between two worlds....
