By far Burroughs best and most famous novel, Tarzan of the Apes tells the story of a boy lost in the jungle and raised by apes in a way that is both more fantastic and more believable than any of the movie versions, all of which miss some major points. Though it has all the ethnocentric assumptions, unbelievable coincidences, and (relatively little) racism of its time, it is still one of the greatest adventure stories of all time.
