Those strange original stories "Tarzan of the Apes" and "The Return of Tarzan" captured the delighted fancy of millions of readers. 

Although they were full of thrills, "The Son of Tarzan" holds the reader's interest with wonderful tenacity and yields nothing to them in the line of breathless adventure.

In this wonderful Tarzan story you will meet Tarzan himself, who is John Clayton, Lord Greystoke; Lady Greystoke, his wife; Alexis Paulvitch, friend of the murderer Rokoff; Akut, the gray ape, and many others, not the least of whom is Jack Clayton, the son of Tarzan.

She buried her face on 
the bosom of this new friend.

He wound his trunk 
about the ape man's body.

"Meriem!" he whispered. 
"My little Meriem!"

"I will go with you," she whispered.

"I know you! I know you!"
She cried.
