'Out of the dark we came, into the dark we go. Like a storm-driven bird at night we fly out of the Nowhere; for a moment our wings are seen in the light of the fire, and, lo! we are gone again into the Nowhere.'

An amazing adventure set in Africa, against the backdrop of endless deserts and snowy mountains, King Solomon's Mines follows Allan Quartermain, in his quest to find his missing brother and unearth the fabled treasure of the biblical King’s mines.

Along the way, Allan and his companions are caught up in a tribal war and face fearful hardships, culminating in a final confrontation with the evil witch Gagool.

About the Author

Sir Henry Rider Haggard (1856-1925) was an English writer of adventure novels that were mostly set in exotic locations, predominantly Africa. He was also a founder of the 'Lost World' literary genre and was also involved in agricultural reform throughout the British Empire.

Action and adventure in a mysterious land


An old adventurer type is drawn into a search for a missing brother that leads to the discovery of a fantastical civilization in the midst of civil strife. A tale of fantasy that never loses its grit. Pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this read.
