Tarzan celebrates his 100th anniversary in 2012, and Andy Briggs has set out to retell the classic story but in a contemporary setting. His Tarzan is a little edgier and more untamed. And he has to deal with some modern dangers, including guerrillas, armed poachers, illegal logging and the desecration of the environment. The story features some of the classic Tarzan characters. Jane appears as a modern technology-savvy 14-year-old girl who is thrown into the jungle world.
Briggs began his writing career working for Hollywood movies and has written children’s books and horror thrillers. He has been passionate about Tarzan since childhood.
