This is a fast paced action packed book! Otis Adelbert Kline was a contemporary of Edgar Rice Burroughs, and apparently they were “rivals”. In Call of the Savage our hero Jan who is a guy, I was thinking a female for some reason when I first read the name, goes from one adventure to the next in a rapid pace. For a modern comparison I would say its similar to Clive Cussler whose characters get into trouble as fast as they get out of it! The story was originally spread out over several issues of the magazine which would could explain some of the fast pace with little transition. Even with the fast pace the story is a fun imaginative read.
