Through the menacing brooding jungle stalked the mighty white youth Ka-Zar discovering, fighting, conquering beasts, savages and white men who came to kill, and steal the golden treasures from this primeval heart of the Congo.

Show Excerpt

Once, far out on the lake, there was a mighty splash. Twice during the night, deep in the jungle a panther screamed. Both times David cried out and both times Constance awoke to quiet him with a tender hand and murmured words of comfort.

The stars, though of dazzling brilliance, seemed very far away and cold. Gradually the various sounds of the jungle grew more familiar in Rand’s ears and his mind strayed back to the events leading up to their disastrous crash.

CHAPTER III

Marooned

AHIGH-SPIRITED young Yank, John Rand had roamed the world in search of adventure and fortune. He had found them both. The Gods had indeed been kind to him.

In a romantic two-weeks' interlude between his fortune seeking expeditions,he had wooed and won the gentle Constance and had spirited her away from under the very nose of the stern headmistress of a fashionable French finishing school. Neither of them had ever regretted the elopement.

*****

If Tarzan is a tequilla sunrise..Ka-Zar is a straight shot of tequilla. Imagine a ripping good Tarzan story without all the internal strife, personal conflict, and romantic interludes; but..with all the jungle perils and knife-play.

All boys and most men should read this book.
