Publisher's Summary

The only female student in Cambridge University's medical program, Jane Porter is far more comfortable in a lab coat dissecting corpses than she is in a corset and gown sipping afternoon tea. A budding paleoanthropologist, Jane dreams of traveling the globe in search of fossils that will prove the evolutionary theories of her scientific hero, Charles Darwin.
When dashing American explorer Ral Conrath invites Jane and her father to join an expedition deep into West Africa, she can hardly believe her luck. Africa is every bit as exotic and fascinating as she has always imagined, but Jane quickly learns that the lush jungle is full of secrets - and so is Ral Conrath. When danger strikes, Jane finds her hero, the key to humanity's past, and an all-consuming love in one extraordinary man: Tarzan of the Apes.
Jane is the first version of the Tarzan story written by a woman and authorized by the Edgar Rice Burroughs estate. Its publication marks the centennial of the original Tarzan of the Apes.

Appalling narration

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

The worst book I have purchased. The female narrator shouts loudly everytime she speaks the words of the father. Utterly confusing, it starts with Jane giving a lecture in America, jumps to her sitting in a huge nest up a tree in West Africa then to a lab in Cambridge. I gave up and returned the book.
