Product Description

About the Author: Edapr Rice Burroughs was born in Chicago in 1875. He took inspiration for many of his stories from the classical mythology and literature he studied in his youth, and from the time he spent at an Idaho ranch set up by his brothers. There he rode the range, herded cattle, and befriended characters that were straight out of the Wild West. His parents were alarmed at some of the new friends he had made, and packed him off to the Michigan Military Academy, where he graduated from in 1895. Unsure of what to do with his life, and rejected by West Point Military Academy, he joined the army as a private. He hoped to become an officer, and didn't have to wait long. As a natural horseman, he was transferred to the famous Seventh Cavalry. After being discharged from the army due to a medical problem, he returned to civilian life. In 1900 he married his childhood sweetheart, Emma Centennial Hulbert. Following this, he tried his hand at various odd jobs, including being a railway policeman and a door-to-door salesman. By 1911, he was penniless, with a wife and two children to support. Things were not looking particularly good. However, his life then took a turn for the better. The story goes that, while proofreading an advertisement for pencil sharpeners in a pulp magazine, inspiration struck. Looking through various magazines, with their tall tales of adventure, he was motivated to write a fantasy story himself. A Princess of Mars appeared as a novel in 1912, and his career as a professional writer took off. Another phenomenally successful novel was Tarzan of the Apes, published in 1914. The character Tarzan went on to become a legend in his own right.
