Waiting for minimum critic reviews



In the forgotten city of Opar the bloodied sacrificial altar of the Flaming God stood above the vaults piled high with the gold destined for fabled, lost Atlantis. There the beautiful high priestess La still dreamed of Tarzan, who had escaped her knife before. But now Tarzan was returning, and the hideous priests were waiting for him. Tarzan was prepared for them, but he could not avoid the earthquake that struck him down in the vaults and left him with only his childhood memories among the savage apes who reared him.


The young Tarzan was unlike the great apes who were his only companions. Theirs was a simple, savage life. But Tarzan had all of a normal boy's desire to learn, and he had painfully taught himself to read from books left by his dead father. Now he tried to apply this book knowledge to the world of the jungle. He searched for the love and affection that every human being needs. But he was alone in his struggles to grow and understand--and the life of the jungle had no room for abstractions.
