Publisher's Summary

Deep in the heart of the Congo a small baby is adopted by Kala, a fierce anthropoid ape of the tribe of Kerchak. Here, protected by his savage foster mother, Tarzan (for so she named him) learned the secrets of jungle life - how to talk with all animals, how to move like a shadow, how to swing freely through the teeming forest, how to fight barehanded the great carnivores. Here he acquired the strength and agility of his guardian apes, and the same keen sense of smell and sound that all wild creatures need to protect themselves. Here he cemented his lifelong friendship with the tribe of Tantor, the great grey elephants. And here, in time, his human intelligence brought him to the leadership of his own tribe.
Fierce, proud, free, superlatively stong and nobly made, Tarzan of the Apes proved himself truly the unconquerable Lord of the Jungle. But civilization holds traps for the jungle-bred. And even Tarzan was not immune to the craft and guile of human beings.

I must admit if I had to read this book I would never get through it. However, the audiobook is wonderful and captivating, with just the right amount of supense. This is largely due to the excellent narrator. I purchased this audiobook on impulse and it was never a disappointment.

Better than when I was a kid

I read and re-read the Tarzan series over 40 years ago and was re-introduced through the audible version. I enjoyed Tarzan of the Apes as much or more now than when I was a kid. A great read.
