From dust jacket: Professor Lafayette Smith and Danny "Gunner" Patrick were products of two opposite poles of society; they had less in common than an Eskimo and an Indian from the headwaters of the Amazon; they were a strange pair thrown together alone on a safari in the African wilderness. But, even so, perhaps they had more in common than Lady Barbara Collis and Jezebel, the golden one. In fact, each of the four was a result of an environment and heredity totally foreign to that of the others. How Fate brought them together through thrilling adventures and terrifying dangers is the theme of this latest Tarzan novel that takes you again into the mysterious mountains and savage jungles of the Dark Continent. Through it all runs the glorious figure of The Lord of the Jungle against a background of the menacing forces of the evil men of the lawless places; he is the Tarzan of our dreams, the incomparable demi-god of the forest. You will walk with him in silence where the careless snapping of a twig means death; you will stand with him over his kills and hear his fierce challenge shatter the quiet of the jungle; you will lie bound and helpless in the village of Dominic Capietro, the white slave trader; you will hear the staccato roll of a Chicago gangster's sub-machine gun splitting the silence of an African night; and through it all you will witness the unfolding of the surprising love stories of two women.
