The Son of Tarzan

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

XXIV

SOMETIMES lolling upon Tantor's back, sometimes roaming the jungle in solitude, Korak made his way slowly toward the West and South. He made but a few miles a day, for he had a whole lifetime before him and no place in particular to go. Possibly he would have moved more rapidly but for the thought which continually haunted him that -- each mile he traversed carried him further and further away from Meriem -- no longer his Meriem, as of yore, it is true I but still as dear to-him as ever.

Thus he came upon the trail of The Sheik's band as it traveled down river from the point where The Sheik had captured Meriem to its own stockaded village. Korak pretty well knew who it was that had passed, for there were few in the great jungle with whom he was not familiar, though it had been years since he had come this far north. He had no particular business, however, with the old Sheik and so he did not purpose following him -- the further from men he could stay the better pleased he would be -- he wished that he might never see a human face again. Men always brought him sorrow and misery.
