Synopsis: The second work of the Tarzan series, "The Return of Tarzan" follows the Lord of the Jungle from one continent to the next as he goes from America to Europe to Africa, encountering personalities of varying morality. Tarzan becomes entangled with Russian spies and French counts, blackmail and murder, kidnapping and intrigue, all the while in love with Jane Porter, who is engaged to marry another man. This 1915 work follows the aristocratic jungle man back to his home, where he is told of the legendary city of Opar and its vast treasure. Through his heartsickness, Tarzan tries first to learn the ways of a gentleman, then to embrace his upbringing, and he encounters beasts in many guises along the way. In his struggle to choose the course of his future, all of the answers come clear in this riveting installment of the Tarzan saga.
About the Author: Burroughs was born on September 1, 1875, in Chicago, Illinois (he later lived for many years in the suburb of Oak Park), the fourth son of businessman and Civil War veteran Major George Tyler Burroughs (1833–1913) and his wife Mary Evaline (Zieger) Burroughs (1840–1920). His middle name is from his paternal grandmother, Mary Rice Burroughs (1802–c.1870). Burroughs was of almost entirely English ancestry, all of which had been in North America since the early colonial era. Through his grandmother Mary Rice, he was descended from Edmund Rice, one of the English Puritans who moved to Massachusetts in the early colonial period. He once remarked "I can trace my ancestry back to Deacon Edmund Rice." The Burroughs side of the family was also of English origins and also emigrated to Massachusetts at around the same time. Many of his ancestors fought in the American Revolution. He had other ancestors who settled in Virginia during the colonial period and he often stressed that side of the family, seeing it as more romantic and war-like.
