A lost American leads Tarzan to the Crusades,
This review is from: Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle (Tarzan, #11) (Mass Market Paperback)
In this Tarzan novel by Burroughs the protagonist of the story is an American named James Blake. Blake while on expedition in the Congo becomes lost all the while Arab slave traders are also invading what Tarzan perceives as his jungle. Tarzan orders both the American hunter, Blake, and the Arab slave trader to leave his jungle. But as the story progresses they are all trapped in an environment of ancient medieval cities locked in time and still fighting and living as they did seven hundred and fifty years earlier.
These two cities founded by Crusaders are were Tarzan comes to the rescue by becoming involved in the Joust and earning the respect of the Knights. Of the twenty four Tarzan novels by Burroughs I have read this move from the jungle does not work as well as the first time Tarzan encountered a loss civilization and being out of his element this time does not enhance the Tarzan story line.But in the end we have the Tarzan of the jungle that we know with his Golden Lion.
