Title: Tarzan and the Forbidden City
Author: Edgar Rice Burroughs
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.
