From the blurb: "In Edgar Rice Burroughs: The Man Who Created Tarzan Irwin Porges gives the reader an in-depth look at ERB. Born. September 1, 1875, Burroughs not only is known as the originator of Tarzan-the twentieth-century folk hero abandoned as an infant in Africa, who grew up to become Lord of the Jungle-but is also acknowledged as an innovator of American science fiction, and his works are still being enjoyed by millions of readers from all parts of the world. Porges captures the essence of this many-sided man who possessed a quicksilver brand of humor and a penchant for controversy, telling of his struggles and successes as a writer, a businessman, and a family man, and revealing his love of animals and the outdoors. Porges has drawn the information on Burroughs largely from primary source materials-correspondence, interviews, tapes, scrapbooks, and personal journals-documenting ERB's contacts with the people who knew him personally. The book also presents a look at ERB's other-world fantasy and jungle adventure stories and includes the flavor of his work done in other genres-western stories, mystery puzzles, plays, poems, articles, newspaper columns, photographs, and drawings."
