Jacket Summary

Edgar Rice Burroughs, one of the most popular authors of all time, is best known as the creator of the world-famous Tarzan of the Apes. In the years since Tarzan's birth, his adventures have been chronicled in books, motion pictures, radio dramatizations, comic strips, and many other forms. 

Tarzan stories have been translated into dozens of languages and are known the world around. TARZAN AND THE TARZAN TWINS is  the only Tarzan book which Burroughs wrote expressly for younger readers, although all of his stories have found an audience of all ages.

Originally broken into two segments and published separately, TARZAN AND THE TARZAN TWINS has for many years consituted two of the most sought-after Burroughs volumes.

This new Canaveral Press edition, profusely illustrated by award-winning artist Roy G. Krenkel, is the first complete book edition of the Tarzan Twins saga.
