5.0 out of 5 stars A book to enjoy and treasure
This book is lavishly illustrated throughout with colourful artwork and stills from the films. It's a mine of information about the creation of all the books, with a brief storyline of the twenty-four novels. Hollywood never really did the ape-man justice - he wasn't a monosyllabic tree-swinging hero; in fact, Tarzan became fluent in many languages, among them French,...

This review is from: Tarzan Centennial (Hardcover)
This book is lavishly illustrated throughout with colourful artwork and stills from the films. It's a mine of information about the creation of all the books, with a brief storyline of the twenty-four novels. Hollywood never really did the ape-man justice - he wasn't a monosyllabic tree-swinging hero; in fact, Tarzan became fluent in many languages, among them French, German and Russian.

Ron Ely, one of the many screen Tarzans, provides a Foreword in which he rightly states that he believes most of the films and TV productions misplaced the ape-man by putting him into contemporary society when the basic allure is the period he was created, the 1920s, an age when communication and travel were protracted and challenging; though the film Greystoke came close. It's about time this great character was restored to his former glory, not as an adventurer in children's fiction but as an exciting pulse-pounding adult hero, which was the original creation.

Indeed, the books were considered inappropriate by the Soviet and Nazi regimes as Tarzan represented bold individualism, so the books were banned or burned. Burning didn't have much effect, of course: over 100 million books by the author, Edgar Rice Burroughs, have been sold, in 37 languages, including Braille and Esperanto.

This is a book to enjoy and treasure, a slice of cultural history.

Tracy Scott Griffin has done a great service to all fans of the ape man.
