Byrd, Robert: Ka-Zar Book One - King of Claw and Fang - 18 May 07
Ok, I have to agree with Dr. Drib--I think we need a little more pulp to read on our high-tech reading machines! All of the great posted classics are making me feel too smart--I'm in the mood for some material that has a little less class.
This is Ka-Zar (pronounced kay-zar) of the Congo in the heart of darkest Africa. He's basically a Tarzan imitation. Born David Rand, his parents were flying over the Congo when their plane crashed. His parents are killed and he gets adopted and raised by a lion named Zar and takes the name of "Ka-Zar".
Growing up in the jungles of the Congo, he learns the languages of the beasts and the ways of the jungle. Ka-Zar uses these skills to help find the man that was ultimately responsible for the death of his father.
I want to thank Dr. Drib for posting "Kwa and the Ape People" earlier, as it inspired me to find more of the PG jungle adventures. Kwa was a great read by the way (strange writing style, but fun), but this text is a little closer to the Edgar Rice Burroughs "Tarzan" quality of writing. Enjoy!

Great fun stuff. Thanks for posting this. (I'll work on the other stuff I've located on G.)
