Books Description:

A great safari had come to Africa to make a movie. It had struggled through the jungle in great ten-ton trucks, equipped with all the advantages of civilization. But now it was halted, almost destroyed by the poisoned arrows of the savage Bansuto tribe. There was no way to return. And ahead lay the strange valley of diamonds, where hairy gorillas lived in their town of London on the Thames, ruled by King Henry the Eighth. Behind them came Tarzan of the Apes with the Golden Lion, seeking the man who might have been his twin brother in looks - though hardly in courage!

Books Description:

The Beasts of Tarzan is the third adventure of the jungle lord and displays the author’s mythic hero at his most loyal, as he struggles through terrible trials to reunite his family, and his most savage, as he confronts the men who dared tear his family apart. Edgar Rice Burroughs returns to the chronicles of one of the world’s most celebrated fictional characters, Tarzan of the Apes. Old enemies resurface to torment Tarzan while he’s in England, living as the civilized Lord Greystoke. The kidnapping of his infant son leads to the capture of both parents, and to Tarzan being stranded, unarmed and naked, on the shore of a jungle island. Maddened by a note left by the kidnappers, hinting at a terrible fate for mother and child, and pitted against a savage collection of jungle beasts, Lord Greystoke reverts to his primal self, a savage animal of superhuman ferocity, and the worst opponent a villain could have. Befriending a savage panther and leading a small army of great apes, Tarzan will fight to restore his family and make his enemies pay a heavy price. The author’s vivid imagination and clear prose grants his incredible tale a beguiling verisimilitude, putting the reader into the wild action with the persuasive power of a 20th century myth. Tarzan remains an unforgettable character and a pop culture phenomenon. Originally published in book form in 1914, The Beasts of Tarzan is part of a rich legacy that includes a series of 24 books and adaptations in film, radio, television, comics and more. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Beasts of Tarzan is both modern and readable.

Books Description:

Now the major motion picture that won the 2014 Academy Award for Best Picture, starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, and Lupita Nyong’o, and directed by Steve McQueen Perhaps the best written of all the slave narratives, Twelve Years a Slave is a harrowing memoir about one of the darkest periods in American history. It recounts how Solomon Northup, born a free man in New York, was lured to Washington, D.C., in 1841 with the promise of fast money, then drugged and beaten and sold into slavery. He spent the next twelve years of his life in captivity on a Louisiana cotton plantation. After his rescue, Northup published this exceptionally vivid and detailed account of slave life. It became an immediate bestseller and today is recognized for its unusual insight and eloquence as one of the very few portraits of American slavery produced by someone as educated as Solomon Northup, or by someone with the dual perspective of having been both a free man and a slave.
