Summary

The first great "Lost World" action-adventure-a precursor to Indiana Jones H. Rider Haggard's "King Solomon's Mines" has entertained generations of readers since its first publication in 1885. Following a mysterious map of dubious reliability, a small group of men trek into southern Africa in search of a lost friend-and a lost treasure, the fabled mines of King Solomon. Led by the English adventurer and fortune hunter Allan Quartermain, they discover a frozen corpse, survive untold dangers in remote mountains and deserts, and encounter the merciless King Twala en route to the legendary hoard of diamonds.

Author Biography

H. Rider Haggard (1856-1925) wrote numerous popular adventure novels after King Solomon's Mines, including Allan Quatermain and She. Haggard drew on his rich experiences in the colonial service in Africa to write some of literature's greatest adventure novels.
