After a violent tropical storm, Orando of the Utengi comes upon a strange bronze giant pinned under a fallen tree. Orando calls the creature Muzimo for it cannot remember its own name and therefore is most probably a godÑa god who will protect Orando from the steel-taloned Leopard Men. Little does Orando know that his protector is Tarzan of the ApesÑfor the Lord of the Jungle has suffered an injury and does not know himself who he is! When the Tarzan series appeared in paperback form from Ballantine Books in the 1960Õs, Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc. decided to ÒtoneÓ down ethnic content. So, most of the books in the series were censored. These censored texts are the ones which Gutenberg.org (an Internet Public Domain story site) picked up and which most reprinters of the stories are using. ERBville Press always goes back to the original sources of the text, whether magazine, First Edition book, or newspaper, for their reprinting.

The Leopard is a modern classic which tells the spellbinding story of a decadent, dying Sicilian aristocracy threatened by the approaching forces of democracy and revolution. In the spring of 1860, Fabrizio, the charismatic Prince of Salina, still rules over thousands of acres and hundreds of people, including his own numerous family, in mingled splendour and squalor. Then comes Garibaldi's landing in Sicily and the Prince must decide whether to resist the forces of change or come to terms with them. ‘Every once in a while, like certain golden moments of happiness, infinitely memorable, one stumbles on a book or a writer, and the impact is like an indelible mark. Lampedusa's The Leopard, his only novel, and a masterpiece, is such a work’ Independent INCLUDES RECENTLY DISCOVERED NEW MATERIAL

The Way of the Leopard encapsulates the intensely intimate relationship that the author shared with leopard cubs Little Boy and Little Girl during the year she spent filming them and researching their behavior. The book also sheds light on the mystical yet profound means through which these beautiful creatures communicate - providing those 'hints and guesses' as to their nature, which always seems to hover just beyond the real of human understanding. The way of the leopard has its origins in the life of a leopard that lived at Londolozi Game Reserve some years ago. It was the mother leopard who opened the way for leopard at Londolozi and who inspired this moving and often humorous account about raising two leopard cubs - Little Girl and Little Boy - at Londolozi and finally setting them free in the Luangwa National Park in Zambia. The way of the leopard is more than a wildlife book. It is, in the author's words, an account of "what it means to come into the animal presence". As such it is a very personal account of the fragile relationship and interaction between humans and leopards. It is in essence the story of the "coming of age" of Little Boy and Little Girl, of what it means to be a leopard. Through this touching personal account, however, the reader is given an insightful view into the life, behavior and characteristics of leopards. The book contains a 32-page full color section of photographs taken by Gillian and the team during their stay with the two leopard cubs. This book is about the reconciliation and the restoration of right relations between man and Nature.

In Voice of the Leopard: African Secret Societies and Cuba, Ivor L. Miller shows how African migrants and their political fraternities played a formative role in the history of Cuba. During the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, no large kingdoms controlled Nigeria and Cameroon's multilingual Cross River basin. Instead, each settlement had its own lodge of the initiation society called Ékpè, or "leopard," which was the highest indigenous authority. Ékpè lodges ruled local communities while also managing regional and long-distance trade. Cross River Africans, enslaved and forcibly brought to colonial Cuba, reorganized their Ékpè clubs covertly in Havana and Matanzas into a mutual-aid society called Abakuá, which became foundational to Cuba's urban life and music. Miller's extensive fieldwork in Cuba and West Africa documents ritual languages and practices that survived the Middle Passage and evolved into a unifying charter for transplanted slaves and their successors. To gain deeper understanding of the material, Miller underwent Ékpè initiation rites in Nigeria after ten years' collaboration with Abakuá initiates in Cuba and the United States. He argues that Cuban music, art, and even politics rely on complexities of these African-inspired codes of conduct and leadership. Voice of the Leopard is an unprecedented tracing of an African title-society to its Caribbean incarnation, which has deeply influenced Cuba's creative energy and popular consciousness. This book is sponsored by a grant from the InterAmericas(r)/Society of Arts and Letters of the Americas, a program of the Reed Foundation.
