Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar is the fifth adventure in the saga of the jungle lord and features both one of the series most celebrated locations, the lost city of Opar, as well as one of its most celebrated characters, the ruthless, obsessed and fatally beautiful La of Opar.
Seeking to make off with some of the lost city of Opar's treasures, Tarzan survives an earthquake only to take a blow to the head and be stricken with partial amnesia, leaving him more wild beast than man. Tarzan can't know that the man he rescues from Opar's Neanderthal inhabitants is actually a deadly foe, or that his wife, Jane, is in mortal danger. Full of entwined plotlines, desperate danger and classic set pieces, Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar features one of the finest lost cities in fiction, a forgotten colony of Atlantis in ruins but still populated by semi-human primitives, full of fabulous treasure, and presided over by La, Opar's gorgeous and merciless queen. Fashioned in the mold of H. Rider Haggard's She, La is an unforgettable creation. Her fierce presence and the scenes of Tarzan's stunning reversion to bestial savagery help make this volume a favorite of many Burroughs aficionados. First appearing in book form in 1918, Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar is part of a rich legacy that includes a series of 24 books and adaptations in film, radio, television, comics and more.
With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar is both modern and readable.
