Farmer’s 1972 volume separates the 'fact' from the 'fiction' in Edgar Rice Burroughs's tales of Tarzan and adds to the legend by tracing Tarzan’s family tree – which includes Sherlock & Mycroft Holmes, the Scarlet Pimpernel, Doc Savage, Nero Wolfe & Bulldog Drummond – and reporting his later exploits as a group captain in the R.A.F. during World War II; the Bison edition includes the text of Farmer's 'interview' with Lord Greystoke.

Folsom also wrote under the pseudonyms Benjamin Brewster, Chase Elwell, Michael Gorham, Lyman Hopkins, Horatio D. Jones, Troy Nesbit & Philip Stander;
he was a Rhodes Scholar and graduated from the University of Colorado; he wrote over 80 books, and also worked as a guide in the Rocky Mountains.

Franklin Folsom was active in labor politics during the 1930s & 1940s (a possible reason for his later use of pseudonyms). Folsom was executive
