Tarzan: The Greystoke Legacy by Andy Briggs

The Lovereading4Kids comment

The classic story of Tarzan, the jungle warrior, has been updated for a new readership. Raised by apes and living in the wilds of modern Africa, Tarzan has new challenges and makes a perfect eco-warrior tackling everything that threatens contemporary Africa from illegal logging to the poaching of endangered species. A great modern adventure paying an attractive homage to the original.


Tarzan: The Greystoke Legacy by Andy Briggs

What lies in the depths of the jungle? Escaping a dark secret, Robbie Canler joins an illegal logging team in the Congo jungle. Now they re under siege from a sinister force. When the daughter of the camp's boss, Jane Porter, goes missing they assume bloodthirsty rebel soldiers have kidnapped her. Robbie sets out on a rescue mission - unaware he is being watched...Are the rumours of a feral man raised by wild apes true? If so, can the mysterious untamed savage be trusted to help them?

About the Author

Andy Briggs

Andy Briggs was born in Liverpool, England. Having endured many careers, ranging from pizza delivery and running his own multimedia company to teaching both IT and film-making (though not at the same time), he eventually remembered the contant encouragement he had received at an early age about his writing. That led him to launch himself on a poor unsuspecting Hollywood. In between having fun writing movie scripts, Andy now has far too much fun writing novels.

He lives in a secret lair somewhere in the south east of England-attempting to work despite his two crazy cats. His claims about possessing superpowers may be somewhat over-exaggerated…
