Plunging into the Canadian wilderness to escape an overpowering grief, John Clayton, Lord Greystoke, divests himself of the veneer of civilization and again becomes the undisputed Lord of the Jungle, Tarzan of the Apes. But the North Woods is not the Dark Continent, and the ape-man swiftly runs a gauntlet of unexpected dangers. First, a vicious kidnap crew take him prisoner. Next, Tarzan encounters a band of Viking warriors who dwell in the vast crater of an ancient meteor strike, and makes common cause with a mysterious ape tribe who roamed the Americas long before man. Caught between warring worlds, his survival at stake, Tarzan stands upon a precipice of doom, both literally and psychologically. Will he triumph... or perish?

Jul 6, 2016Tarzan on the Precipice by Michael A Sanford This book has several things going for it from page one. First of all it is official; being licensed by Edgar Rice Burroughs®. Next, it is written in a style that mimics Burroughs so well that it could easily be mistaken for a Burroughs original newly discovered. And last, but far from least, it has a definite chronological position in the Tarzan canon. The story takes place between Tarzan of the Apes and The Return of Tarzan. Stinging from his rejection by Jane Porter, Tarzan allows his cousin William Clayton to take the title of Lord Greystoke, as Jane has agreed to marry William. Leaving them, Tarzan travels by car into the wilds of Canada beyond Lake Huron. Safely in the wilderness, Tarzan decides to go hunting as only Tarzan can. Tarzan vanishes into the North Woods once again clad in loin cloth and bearing only his father’s knife, a length of woven grass rope, a spear, and a bow and arrows. Now more animal than man he seeks his... More > prey in a vastly different environment. Meanwhile a young woman named London Gunderson travels by train into the same general area. Madame Gunderson wants her daughter to marry into high society. London isn’t impressed with that decision. Their escort Mr. Ernest Fitch is a teacher who has spent a lifetime serving the upper class, and has the manners and bearing to introduce London into high society functions. Both Tarzan and London are captured by the evil duo Skinner and Lennie. Viking warriors, desperados, and a local clan of Sasquatch all combine in a story for the ages. Seemingly each should not even come close to being connected, yet they are all part of a cruel plan. Skinner wants wealth that comes from the Vikings, the Vikings want Sasquatch for forced labor in a hidden mine, and the Sasquatch King is willing to sacrifice his own people to have the protection of the Vikings who know the giant anthropoids’ secret. Add in Tarzan, London and her mother and Mr. Fitch and mix well. The result is a tale Tarzan fans can really sink their teeth into! And it is an excellent meal to be devoured in one setting, then revisited and reread time and time again! I give this excellent book five stars plus… Quoth the Raven…< Less
Jul 3, 2016This outstanding novel held my interest from page one. There is a great story which perfectly answers what happened to Tarzan between the first two Tarzan novels. The writing is strong, the characters are fascinating and the adventures are fitting for a true Tarzan story. This book was clearly written by a true Burroughs fan and will appeal to fans and newbies alike. Thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish!
