About the Author

Edgar Rice Burroughs was born on September 1, 1875, in Chicago. His father, George Tyler was a distiller and a battery manufacturer. Early in life Burroughs attempted to support his family in a variety of occupations, including railroad policeman, business partner, and miner. None of these proved mostrar mais successful. However, Burroughs had always enjoyed reading adventure fiction and decided to try his hand at writing. His first attempt, written under the pseudonym Normal Bean, sold very quickly and Burroughs' career took off. Although critics and educators have not always been supportive of Burroughs' writing, the characters in his stories have entertained readers for many years. Tarzan was the most popular, earning Burroughs enough money to start his own publishing house and a motion picture company. Another character, John Carter, is the hero of Burroughs' Mars adventure series. The continuing popularity of these characters has led some critics to reconsider the value of Burroughs' writing and to acknowledge significant themes in his stories. Burroughs died on March 19, 1950. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Edgar Rice Burroughs (September 1, 1875 – March 19, 1950) was an American speculative fiction writer, best known for his prolific output in the adventure, science fiction and fantasy genres. Among his most well-known creations include Tarzan of the Apes, John Carter of Mars (Barsoom series), and Carson Napier of Venus (Amtor series).

He is also known for the hollow Earth-themed Pellucidar series, beginning with At the Earth's Core (1914); and the lost world-themed Caspak trilogy, beginning with The Land that Time Forgot (1918).

Burroughs' California ranch is now the center of the Tarzana neighborhood in Los Angeles

For all of its inaccuracies about real-world Africa, I was surprised to find that this was a compelling story when I recently re-read it. As a child, my principal memory seems to be of encountering the word 'eunuch' in one of the Tarzan books, and learning with shock what it meant from my father.

"The Cave Girl" was published only a year after "Tarzan" and it has so many of the same plot elements, differently distributed. As with every other Burroughs novel I have ever read, I enjoyed it very much. Since the audio of "The Cave Girl" includes "The Cave Man", in which our heroes settle back into civilization with no evident trouble, there is no promise of a sequel. Tarzan was the more original invention.

Just a good old-fashioned fun pulp sci-fi book! Cheesy-ness galore.
