DEDICATION: "To Danton Burroughs for his suggestions regarding the text of this novel. Also, my heartfelt thanks to him for giving me permission to write an original Tarzan novel. Thus, I've fulfilled a seventy-year-old ambition.
To Edgar Rice Burroughs, the only begetter of Tarzan of the Apes, John Carter of Barsoom, and David Innes of Pellucidar. Without ERB, my life would have been much less rich and luminous.
My thanks also to Robert R. Barrett for his scholarly advice regarding the text of this work. Also, for his discovery of a new great-ape word—Umpa the caterpillar".
COVER TEXT:
Tarzan's beloved mate, Jane, has been kidnapped, and the furious ape-man will let nothing stand in the way of rescuing her - not even a sinister safari whose target is Tarzan himself. With fierce Masai trackers leading the chase, a trio of white hunters is hell-bent on capturing the Jungle Lord. But as his pursuers close in on their prey with uncanny accuracy, Tarzan races toward even greater danger ahead.
For the trail leads to a bizarre, long-forgotten land boasting a multitude of strange and terrifying mysteries: the City Built by God, the Hideous Hunter, and, most shocking of all, the Crystal Tree of Time—whose seductive powers could ultimately spell Tarzan's doom...
