FOR THE LOVE OF THE QUEEN ~ 1933.10.08
THE LOVE OF THE QUEEN: When Kamur raised the knife over Tarzan for the
death-blow, Nikotris rushed toward him crying out frantically. "The man

the only thing in t he world I treasure," he said. "Your love is the only

Nikotris watched and prayed by the two wounded men. The dread silence was
broken by strange cries from the beasts that prowled in the foothills.

Then sheeta sprang for the kill!
