He saw red as he leaped for the throat of the man-beast whose ruthless hands were upon Nadara.from the book
Back in Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A., he was a blueblood named Waldo Smith-Jones. But when he found himself in a desperate effort to survive on a lost island of primitive men and beasts, he won not only a new name but also the hand of the cave princess, Nadara.
Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875-1950), born in Chicago, was educated at Michigan Military Academy and served briefly in the U.S. Cavalry. His early life was marked by several attempts at careers. While working as a pencil-sharpener salesman, he began writing, first advertising copy and then fiction. His first published piece, "Under the Moons of Mars," appeared in 1911 and was so successful that Burroughs began writing full-time. The first Tarzan story appeared in 1912, followed in 1914 by Tarzan of the Apes, the first of twenty-five such books. The area where he lived north of Los Angeles later became the suburb of Tarzana.
