Tarzan of the Apes
The Return of Tarzan by Edgar Rice Burroughs contains even more adventure, romance and enthralling action than Tarzan of the Apes. At the end of the first book in the classic series that inspired the Disney movie, Jane had promised to marry William Cecil Clayton, Lord Greystoke, convinced by friends and family she could never know happiness living in the jungle as the bride of a primitive ape-man. Tarzan, who had just learned from a comparison of his fingerprints that he is the true heir to the Greystoke title and fortune, had concealed the fact and swore that he was the offspring of a white hunter and an ape, so that Jane can have a life of unshadowed happiness with her fiancée. Known around the world, the story of Tarzan, a man raised by apes, led to 25 such books beginning with Tarzan of the Apes (1914).

Review: Tarzan of the ApesUser Review - Elizabeth M. - Christianbook.com
Hollywood has done such a hack job on this; you can forget how intelligent a writer Edgar Rice Burroughs was. I was never a fan of the whole "Tarzan" idea, but my boys sure loved the story. They think all Tarzan movies are ridiculous now that they have read this. Read full review
