The Friday 56, Tarzan Triumphant

* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of Storytime With Tonya and Friends.
*Post a link along with your post back to Storytime With Tonya and Friends.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

The closest book this week is Tarzan Triumphant by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Yes, I read Tarzan novels. And I like them. This is number 15 in the series.

The sentence:

Furthermore, to admit that he was a Red might assure the other that a ransom could be obtained more surely than from a White, whose organization was admittedly weak and poverty stricken.

Apparently a moment when being Red was not worse than being dead. This is the second time the Russians have been running around in the jungle with a political agenda. I guess Tarzan needed someone besides big game hunter and fortune seekers to fight.

This looks like a fun book! I read some Edgar Rice Burroughs years ago.

Until this moment I had no idea there were so many Tarzan novels.
