It was a place of unmapped oceans dotted with great islands' a world whose trees pierced the clouds and whose cities squatted on their branches; a planet who inhabitants included men, half-men, and monsters, allstruggling with each other for dominance. Carson Napier's adventures, his search for the beautiful Duare, are a Burroughs novel in the best Tarzan tradition. "; 5" - 6" Tall

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 strong 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."; 6" - 7" Tall
