The Son of Tarzan

By Edgar Rice Burroughs; J. Allen St. John | Go to book overview

VII

In his hand was a long spear, down his back hung an oblong shield such as the black warriors who had attacked them had worn, and upon ankle and arm were bands of iron and brass, while a loin cloth was twisted about the youth's middle. A knife was thrust through its folds.
