Tarzan and the City of Gold

ByEdgar Rice Burroughs

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
The circumstances that brought Tarzan northward into Kaffa are not a part of this story. Perhaps it is enough that the Lord of the Jungle loves to roam remote fastnesses still unspoiled by the devastating hand of civilization. Unsated with adventure, it may be that Abyssinia’s 350,000 square miles of semisavagery held an irresistible lure for him in their suggestion of mysterious back country and in the ethonological secrets they have guarded from time immemorial. Wanderer, adventurer, outcast, Greek phalanx, and Roman legion, all have entered Abyssinia within times chronicled by history or legend never to reappear; and it is believed by some that she holds the secret of the lost tribes of Israel. What wonders, then, what adventures, might not her remote corners reveal! And it was to one such corner that the strange white warrior in armor of ivory led Tarzan to the luxurious court of the most beautiful woman in the world, to slavery, to the arena, to the lion pit, to an atmosphere of love and hate, of intrigue and murder, to new friends and powerful enemies, to the throne of the Great God Thoos, to flaming Xarator, and to the horrors of the Grand Hunt. If you are bored by the humdrum of the daily grind of civilization, lay aside the badges of your servitude, don a loin cloth of lion skin, seize bow and arrows and spear, and tread the silent trails of the mysterious jungle toward high adventure with Tarzan of the Apes. NOTE: This book contains the original first edition book text, uncensored and uncut.
