The story of Tarzan and Jane has delighted fans for a century. Their romantic/adventure stories are as much fun to read now as they were when they were first written. Edgar Rice Burroughs was born in 1875 in Chicago, Illinois. Although Burroughs wrote in many genres he is best known for creating the jungle hero Tarzan. Burroughs began writing for pulp fiction magazines and in 1912 he published Tarzan of the Apes. Burroughs went against the advice of men in his field and made Tarzan a marketing success though comic strips, movies and commercial products. There are 26 novels in the Tarzan series. Jungle Tales of Tarzan is the sixth book in the Tarzan series and is composed of 12 stories. Chronologically these stories fall between chapters 12 and 13 in the first book Tarzan of the Apes.
