Korak and Pahkut, his ape companion, set out to hunt while Tarzan and Jane discuss their son’s evolution from Boy into Korak. Tarzan explains to Jane that “Korak” is the closest the apes can come to saying the name “Jack.” Korak and Pahkut spot an empty balloon hung in a tree that must have come from the circus in Nairobi. When they climb aboard the basket, Korak, intent upon studying the craft, does not notice that Pahkut empties all the sand bags overboard in search of food. The balloon drifts loose, with the pair on board, for a great distance, finally clearing the tops of some mountains. In fright Pahkut climbs the ropes and inadvertently pulls the valve cord, causing the craft to crash into the trees beside a mountain lake. They investigate the local tribe by spying over their palisade wall, and Korak sees a young white girl with a small wooden doll being punished by a black woman. After the woman leaves, Korak swoops down to rescue the girl, whose name is Wendy Land. The tribe had burned her home and captured her while her father was away. Mumba returns with a group of warriors and Korak is captured. Meanwhile, Tarzan has tracked the two adventurers and comes upon Pahkut in the forest, lamenting the capture of his son. Tarzan and Pahkut slip over the palisade after dark and knock the guard of the captives’ hut unconscious. As they are freeing the kids, the sight of Pahkut causes Wendy to start screaming, so Tarzan and the group have to escape by fighting their way over the palisade amidst a hail of spears. The next morning, they come upon the hunting party of Wendy’s father, who is anxiously searching for her. Wendy runs to him, as Tarzan and Korak immediately disappear into the jungle.
