Tarzan's fearsome call summons the most formidable array of jungle fighters ever known... THE BEASTS OF TARZAN.

"Ten pounds if you will find a boat and row me to that steamer," cried the woman.
"Quick, then," he replied, "for we gotta go it if we're goin' to catch the Kincaid afore she sails. She's had steam up for three hours an' jest been a-waitin' fer that one passenger. I was a-talkin' to one of her crew 'arf an hour ago."

Excellent book. Very enjoyable. The interaction between Tarzan and the most intelligent ape is great! Since I love cats, I really enjoyed reading about Tarzan and his Sheeta!
This book is another very good read by Mr. Burroughs. The story has plenty of unexpected twists and turns. One thing that I don't like about Tarzan though is how he is so forgiving of the villians in his life. Tarzan is in the same boat as Batman , Superman and others in this regard.
