9780978270711: The Mystery of the Black Jungle (Sandokan)

India, 1851. Few can live in the Black Jungle, a desolate place teeming with wild dangerous beasts. Yet it is among its dark forests and bamboo groves that the renowned hunter Tremal-Naik makes his home. For years he has lived there in peace, quietly going about his trade until, one night, a strange apparition appears before him - a beautiful young woman that vanishes in an instant. Within days, strange music is heard in the jungle then one of his men is found dead without a mark upon his body. Determined to get some answers, the hunter sets off with his faithful servant Kammamuri, but as they head deeper into the jungles of the Sundarbans, they soon find their own lives at risk; a deadly new foe has been watching their every move, a foe that threatens all of British India. Part of a series of adventures that includes: Sandokan: The Tigers of Mompracem and Sandokan: The Pirates of Malaysia.

From the Author:

Sharing traditions. That's what we do at ROH Press. For over a century the adventure novels of Emilio Salgari have been popular with children in Italy and Latin America. His most popular works were pirate tales featuring Sandokan, 'the Tiger of Malaysia' and the Black Corsair, a nobleman turned pirate to avenge the murder of his brothers. They are considered classics for readers aged 10-14 and have been the basis for comic books, TV series and movies.
 
ROH Press has published the first ever English translations of his most popular works. In 2008, they were awarded the Italian Ministry of Cultural Affairs' Translation Award for the English language version of Emilio Salgari's classic The Tigers of Mompracem. In 2009 the Sandokan and Black Corsair novels were both listed in Julia Eccleshare's 1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up. 

Review:

A classic story of love at first sight, the damsel in distress, and of course violence, death, human sacrifice, and exotic animals! Good adventure story with minimal romance aspect. ~ K. Penn,  To Read or Not To Read

A page turner! Full of exciting events! ~ Caroline, Portrait of a Woman

The pacing carries the book and makes it so entertaining. Certainly the description of the Thugs' vast underground lair, and of their ritual sacrifices to Kali, could have easily inspired such scenes in Gunga Din, Indian Jones and the Temple of Doom, and Young Sherlock Holmes.  ~ Georges T. Dodds SF Site

Excerpt included in Umberto Eco's The Book of Legendary Lands
