Edgar Rice Burroughs eye witness account of the attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec 7 1941

Our friends at ERBZine have posted an interesting letter from Edgar Rice Burroughs himself who witnessed the Pearl Harbor from the Honolulu island together with his son.

When we awoke Sunday morning, December 7th, we heard a great deal of firing, some of it very loud; but we hear a great deal of firing here and had been informed by the newspapers the day before that heavy guns would be fired from various parts of the island during the ensuing several days; so we thought nothing of it and went to breakfast.

“Tarzan Slept Here” Book

Tarzan Slept Here Book Flier

For over two decades, the “small town” of Coldwater, Michigan provided a “big city” getaway for Tarzan author, Edgar Rice Burroughs. Tarzan Slept Here details the authors time spent in Coldwater, the summer home to his wife’s family, the Hulberts. A pair of Burroughs’ well-known works were penned in Coldwater: “Beyond Thirty” was imagined at Sunnyside Farm; and the fourth chapter of “Jungle Tales of Tarzan” was written while overlooking Morrison Lake.

Written by Michigan author and historian, Michael A. Hatt, and illustrated with numerous photos and artifacts of the period, Tarzan Slept Here tells of life-changing decisions made by Burroughs, in this often overlooked chapter of his life.
