Tarzan of the Apes is a novel written by Edgar Rice Burroughs. The novel tells the story of John Clayton, born in the western coastal jungles of equatorial Africa to a marooned couple from England, John and Alice (Rutherford) Clayton, Lord and Lady Greystoke. Adopted as an infant by the she-ape Kala after his parents die (his mother dies of natural causes on Tarzan's first birthday, and his father is killed by the savage king ape Kerchak), Clayton is named "Tarzan" ("White Skin" in the ape language) and raised in ignorance of his human heritage.

Synopsis:

When Tarzan is orphaned as a baby deep in the African jungle, he is adopted by a she-ape. Raised as one of her own, Tarzan learns the ways of the Kerchak - the tribe of apes who rule the jungle. By the time he is a young man Tarzan has the courage and strength of ten men. But it is his human brain that allows him to become King of the Apes.
