The Return of Tarzan by Edgar Rice Burroughs is the second volume in the Tarzan series. First published in 1913, this book is a work of genius. There is something about Burroughs writing that is captivating, and this book is no exception. The Return of Tarzan is a highly entertaining volume.

The book first starts with Tarzan on a ship going from New York to France. On this trip, he makes friends with a Countess and makes an enemy with her brother, a Russian. The Russian will attempt to cause Tarzan problems for the following months. After growing tired of France, Tarzan decides to return to Africa. However, his journey is beset with adventures in desert and wilderness.

The story leads to Tarzan finding Opar, the lost outpost of Atlantis, in the heart of Africa. Although both the men and women of Opar are white, the women retained their beauty, while the men are more ape-like in appearance. From here, there are more adventures and peril.

For great adventures, as you may have come to expect from Edgar Rice Burroughs, The Return of Tarzan will meet your needs.

This is, to my mind, the best of the Tarzan series. If you like Raiders of the Lost Ark then youll love this sequel to Tarzan of the Apes. Like Raiders, The Return is chalk full of adventure. You name it, its got it: desert adventure, ocean cruises, spy stuff, lost cities, beautiful women, Paris, jungle adventure (naturally), evil Russian villians, etc., etc.

The Return is definitive proof of why Tarzan is perhaps the greatest adventure hero of all time!
