Book Excerpt: 
. . .I am Tarzan of the Apes," boasted the ape-man; "mighty hunter, mighty fighter! None in all the jungle so great as Tarzan."

Then he made his way back in the direction of Taug. Teeka had watched the happenings in the tree. She had even placed her precious balu upon the soft grasses and come a little nearer that she might better witness all that was passing in the branches above her. In her heart of hearts did she still esteem the smooth-skinned Tarzan? Did her savage breast swell with pride as she witnessed his victory over the ape? You will have to ask Teeka.

And Sheeta, the panther, saw that the she-ape had left her cub alone among the grasses. He moved his tail again, as though this closest approximation of lashing in which he dared indulge might stimulate his momentarily waned courage. The cry of the victorious ape-man still held his nerves beneath its spell. It would be several minutes before he again could bring himself to the point of. . . Read More

I've always been, and always will be a fan of Tarzan. Might be a bit campy and pulp fictionish, but I love it!

আবারো জঙগলে টারজান। দেখা হল ছেলেবেলাকার সাথী টিকার সাথে। এদিকে টগ পছনদ করে টিকাকে। এ নিয়ে বিরোধে জড়ায় টগ ও টারজান।

This is a collection of loosely-connected short stories in the life of Tarzan while he was still growing into young adulthood. Events in some stories are mentioned in later stories so it is best to read them all in order. The entirety of the twelve stories actually fit chronologically within chap...more

You can tell this book is a product of its time. Very pompous writing and some pretty racist things said about the African tribe he lives near. I took all this with the grain of salt knowing that Burroughs wrote in the time of the Great White Ideal and just had fun reading it. There were times it...more

12 small stories of Tarzan set during his early years, before knowing that he was Lord Greystoke, before Jane, before all the intrigues and the white enemies... this is the real thing, only jungle, animals, cannibal tribes and the quest for survival of a young boy raised by apes.

I should have loved Jungle Tales, but I didn't. Mostly because it was like a collection of short stories, but it also wasn't. It wanted to be a collection of short stories, but also tried to have a story line throughout. I wish it would have picked one and stuck to it. All the tales take place be...more

I remembered this favorite from my dad, and read it to my 3rd, 6th, and 9th graders. I didn't remember the violence in some of it, and so I ended up skipping some of it with them. The 6th grader thought that this book should be for 5th grade and above, because of the violence. That sounds reasona...more

I imagine that someday I will look back at JUNGLE TALES OF TARZAN as Edgar Rice Burroughs' masterpiece. The stories it contains are startlingly effective--not just as Tarzan stories, but as adventure stories period. Each one is impeccably written, exciting, and way more philosophical than I would...more

This was a collection of short stories set when Tarzan was a youth. Overall, it was quite enjoyable. There wasn't a whole lot to them as far as things that are crucial to the mythos, but still a fun read.

If you enjoyed the first Tarzan novel, Tarzan of the Apes, you'll probably really like this...more

I enjoyed this addition to the series. I found it interesting that in book 6 Burroughs decides to explore how Tarzan's mind works, how he differs from the apes and how he feels about being different--for that matter how the apes feel about him being so different!

Burroughs explores the idea of Go...more
