Nu, the son of Nu, his mighty muscles rolling beneath his smooth bronzed skin, moved silently through the jungle primeval. His handsome head with its shock of black hair, roughly cropped between sharpened stones, was high held, the delicate nostrils questioning each vagrant breeze for word of Oo, hunter of men. Now his trained senses catch the familiar odor of Ta, the great woolly rhinoceros, directly in his path, but Nu, the son of Nu, does not hunt Ta this day. Does not the hide of Ta's brother already hang before the entrance of Nu's cave? No, today Nu hunts the gigantic cat, the fierce saber-toothed tiger, Oo, for Nat-ul, wondrous daughter of old Tha, will mate with none but the mightiest of hunters. Only so recently as the last darkness, as, beneath the great, equatorial moon, the two had walked hand in hand beside the restless sea she had made it quite plain to Nu, the son of Nu, that not even he, son of the chief of chiefs, could claim her unless there hung at the thong of his loin cloth the fangs of Oo. "Nat-ul," she had said to him, "wishes her man to be greater than other men. She loves Nu now better than her very life, but if Love is to walk at her side during a long life Pride and Respect must walk with it." Her slender hand reached up to stroke the young giant's black hair. "I am very proud of my Nu even now," she continued, "for among all the young men of the tribe there is no greater hunter, or no mightier fighter than Nu, the son of Nu. Should you, single-handed, slay Oo before a grown man's beard has darkened your cheek there will be none greater in all the world than Nat-ul's mate, Nu, the son of Nu."

"The Eternal Savage" is an interesting off shoot by Edgar Rice Burroughs of his most famous creation, Tarzan. "The Eternal Savage" was originally published in two parts, "The Eternal Lover" in "All-Story Weekly" and "Sweetheart Primeval" in "All-Story Cavalier Weekly." "Nu of the Neocene" was ERB's original working title for the first part of the story, which does have John Clayton (Tarzan), his wife Jane, and infant son Jack as part of the story, but do not try to make it fit into the chronology of the Tarzan series because Jack's age is going to mess things up when it comes to being of age during World War I.
Nu, son of Nu, is a troglodyte who is out hunting a sabre tooth tiger in order to prove himself as being worthy of Nat-ul, the daughter of Tha. But during an earthquake Nu is buried alive in a cave and then a hundred thousands years pass. At that point, Victoria Custer and her brother Barney are visiting Lord and Lady Greystoke at their African estate, where they are enjoying a big game hunt. Victoria has a fear of earthquakes, even if she sees signs of one that happened a long time ago. She has also been having dreams of a strong manly figure that has captured her imagination. She is about to accept a proposal of marriage from William Curtiss, who has traveled halfway around the world to propose, when there is an earthquake and she faints. Of course, the earthquakes opens up the sealed cave and Nu comes walking out to find things have change (the monkeys do not know his tribe). At this point the only other thing you need to know to have a good idea of where this one is going is that Victoria looks exactly like Nat-ul.
Actually, what will come to mind when you read "The Eternal Savage" is going to be the O. Henry type-twist that ERB springs on his readers halfway through "The Eternal Savage." At that point the title will actually start to make sense to you. The twist is what elevates this pulp fiction yarn to at least average potboiler status. You have to keep in mind that this is still early Burroughs and that he is still trying to find a way of getting beyond his basic primal male going after the civilized female plotline. It is in his science fiction series, especially the John Carter Martian novels, that ERB is his most imaginative, but there is a touch of that here. "The Eternal Savage" is a minor Burroughs novel, but worth a look at for his fans.

Not my favorite Burroughs book to date at all. Nu the son of Nu, while hunting to prove what a man he is to the woman he loves manages to get stuck inside of a cave--that has chryogenic properties. Fastforward to the present (ERB's not ours).

Virigina Custer, and her brother Barney along with a potential suitor, Curtiss, are staying with Lord and Lady Greystoke. Yes, indeed, that Lord Greystoke. The only way I can explain the way that he behaves in the book (never using his Tarzan powers to track things down, he seems to get sent on very slow and unsuccessful rescue missions and hunting parites) is the plot device....

(SPOILER)

At the very begining Virigina faints due to her life long fear of earthquakes. She wakes up m oments later....but before she does the novel takes place and we as readers aren't clued into that until the very end. I got stuck up on Tarzan not acting like himself (even though he isn't the main character) so I got rather frustrated with the book. Since it was all in Victoria's mind it can be excused to her ignorace of his jungle prowess.

However, not everything was totally in her mind. It does seem that she is infact the reincarnation of Nat-ul, Nu's intended mate. So we get to see their adventures together, interesting, but repetative--every ugly brute wants Nat-ul so poor Nu is forever having to rescue her.

An alright story, but, eh. Not one I am compelled to shout out my love for.

I really enjoyed reading this ERB book. At first I was not sure that I would really enjoy it as I am a Tarzan fan but did not know much of the other books that ERB wrote, but I was pleasantly surprised as I really fell in love with the characters of all the time periods. The action is as well written as all of the other ERB books and I really felt as if I was in the prehistoric ages, age that is mostly in this book. The action was fantastic and so is the description of the beasts and life back then. Awesome book that is now part of my favourites. I recommend to all ERB fans.

This book by Edgar Rice Burroughs was originally published in two parts, in 1914 and 1915. It is about a caveman named Nu. In the first story, Nu time travels to the early 20th century and meets a girl who is the reincarnation of his old girlfriend. Tarzan actually appears as a minor character in this story. In the second story, Nu ends up back in his own time period. This being Burroughs, Nu goes through various hardships before he ends up with his lady love. This is a minor Burroughs book, but it's fairly entertaining.
