The sixth book in the Tarzan series is a collection of twelve short stories. They take place when Tarzan still lived among the apes. They deal with Tarzan’s first love (ends badly as all first loves do). His run in with the local witch doctor. His attempts to get the tribe to post sentries. Battles with a rival ape tribe. Tarzan’s quest for God and ends with Tarzan saving the moon.

I bet you didn’t know we have Tarzan to thank for the moon’s existence. This book is probably the weakest in the series. It’s not that its bad. I’ve read this book several times and will probable read it several more before I die. It’s just that I find this stage of Tarzan’s life dull. I much prefer his post civilization adventures. Thankfully Burroughs next book was his most powerful Tarzan yet.
