A biography of Edgar Rice Burroughs, the writer who created the jungle hero, Tarzan, without setting foot in Africa. It portrays him as a failed adventurer--he was rejected by the Rough Riders-- working at boring jobs until he turned to writing in his thirties. He had to wait till his sixties to taste adventure, becoming America's oldest war correspondent in World War II.
