The Jungle Warrior

Andy Briggs

A Legend Reborn
The world's most infamous hunter, Nikolas Rokoff, is sent into the jungle to steal a rare prize from Tarzan's camp. But Tarzan and his friends Jane and Robbie will stop at nothing to track him down--crossing the wild rainforest and hostile African savannah on a daring rescue mission. At the same time, Jane tries to learn more about Tarzan's past, and must decide whether reuniting him with his lost family is the right thing to do. And Robbie is torn by a plan that would keep the secrets of his own past safe, but might get rid of Tarzan for good. Lured to the city, Tarzan is forced to confront his greatest enemy. But time is running out--and no one can be trusted.

Praise for this book

"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 PhD, DBE "Not only has Andy Briggs produced another thrilling adventure story that young readers will adore, it is also possibly even better than its predecessor." --TheBook Zone (for Boys)
