A Legend Reborn Robbie Canler flees to the Congo to escape a dark secret, and finds work with an illegal logging operation. Suddenly, his camp is attacked by a savage force. When Jane Porter, the daughter of the camp's boss, goes missing, the loggers assume bloodthirsty rebel soldiers have kidnapped her. Spurred into action, Robbie sets out alone to find her-completely unaware that he is being watched. Caught in the midst of the many dangers that lie in the depths of the jungle, Robbie wonders if the rumors of a supernatural white ape are true. And if so, can this mysterious untamed savage be trusted to help, or will it destroy them all? "I fell in love with Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan when I was 11 years old, and was jealous when he married that silly Jane. I would have been even more jealous of the Jane in Tarzan: The Greystoke Legacy. She is not silly at all And what a stroke of brilliance to transform Tarzan into an eco-warrior. The Lord of the Jungle is with us still." -Jane Goodall Ph.D., DBE "A classic with a 21st-century twist, this riveting adventure overflows with suspense, danger, brutality and beauty. An action-packed thriller from the opening line, it leaves the reader wanting more." -Booktrust "Tarzan: The Greystoke Legacy captures brilliantly the dark, gritty spirit of the Edgar Rice Burroughs stories and is a real whirlwind of an action/adventure yarn." -Bookbitz Andy Briggs is a screenwriter, graphic novelist, and author.
