The story of Tarzan and Jane has delighted fans for a century. Their romantic/adventure stories are as much fun to read now as they were when they were first written. Edgar Rice Burroughs was born in 1875 in Chicago, Illinois. Although Burroughs wrote in many genres he is best known for creating the jungle hero Tarzan. Burroughs began writing for pulp fiction magazines and in 1912 he published Tarzan of the Apes. Burroughs went against the advice of men in his field and made Tarzan a marketing success though comic strips, movies and commercial products. There are 26 novels in the Tarzan series. In this 1915 sequel to Tarzan of the Apes, Tarzan leaves civilization and Jane to return to the African jungle where he grew up. Although he discovers Opar, the city of gold, he is not content. When Jane arrives, he asks for her hand in marriage.
