    More Information:

    "On December 6, 1928, only a few weeks after completing Tanar of Pellucidar, Burroughs began work on a continuation volume which ties up the loose ends left by the Tanar tale, but now involving Tarzan... It is a favorite with many fans" (Zeuschner, Edgar Rice Burroughs: The Bibliography, 2016).
