Abstract:

"In King Solomon's Mines, the English adventurer Allan Quartermain and his companions embark on a perlious journey to find the fabled diamond mines of King Solomon. This gripping tale of treasure and war in the lost civilization of Kukuanaland is fast-paced and filled with magnificent descriptions of the African wild, tremendous battles, and enough action to fill several books. For more than a century, King Solomon's Mines has stirred the imaginations of countless readers around the world.

Its sequel, Allan Quartermain, more than lives up to the excellence of King Solomon's Mines. In this tale, Allan Quartermain and his fellow adverturers journey to the Frowning City, the capital of a lost civilization jointly ruled by two beautiful sister-queens. Like King Solomon's Mines, the book is filled with nonstop action, reaching a peak when the great Zulu warrior Umslopogaas, one of Haggard's most memorable characters, defends the stairs of the queen's palace in a thrilling hand-to-hand combat sequence.

She may be the most enchanting and and enduring of all Haggard's works. The romantic, supernatural tale of Ayesha, who has discovered the secret of eternal life and waits two thousand years for the reincarnation of her lost lover, took the reading public by storm. No one had ever read anything quite like She before. In the novel, Leo Vincey and L. Horace Holly, two English scholars and gentlemen, set out on an epic quest to find the lost African land of Kor and solve the mystery of Ayesha. Readers will never forget their adventures, which range from pure nightmare to sublime enchantment. She is one of the most original and imaginative stories even written."--Jacket.
