Book: Tarzan of the Apes
Tarzan’s grief and anger were unbounded. He roared out his hideous challenge time and again. He beat upon his great chest with his clenched fists, and then he fell upon the body of Kala and sobbed out the pitiful sorrowing of his lonely heart. To lose the only creature in all his world who ever had manifested love and affection for him was the greatest tragedy he had ever known.
While Tarzan is down at the beach spending time in his parent’s cabin, he hears a commotion in the direction of his tribe and rushes back to them. Kala has been killed by Kulonga, the first man since Tarzan to set foot in the ape’s part of the jungle, who shoots her with a poisoned arrow while hunting for his tribe. Tarzan tracks the man down and discovers his village…of cannibals! He kills Kulonga by literally hanging him from the tree tops before the terrified faces of the villagers, while staying completely hidden, and begins a long series of haunting tricks on the village that will, eventually, come back to haunt him later.
For this one, I decided to keep it simple. Hope you like it!
