Title: Tarzan and the Forbidden City

Author: Edgar Rice Burroughs

Chapter 1

THE RAINY SEASON was over; and forest and jungle were a riot of lush

green starred with myriad tropical blooms, alive with the gorgeous

coloring and raucous voices of countless birds, scolding, loving,

hunting, escaping; alive with chattering monkeys and buzzing insects

which all seemed to be busily engaged in doing things in circles and

getting nowhere, much after the fashion of their unhappy cousins who

dwell in unlovely jungles of brick and marble and cement.

As much a part of the primitive scene as the trees themselves was the

Lord of the Jungle, lolling at his ease on the back of Tantor, the

elephant, lazing in the mottled sunlight of the noonday jungle.
