Description

After the tragic death of his son, Allan Quatermain’s grief is inconsolable. Feeling that the only possible way to ease his pain is through an expedition, Quatermain seeks out Captain Good, Sir Henry Curtis, and the Zulu chief Umslopogaas, who all previously journeyed with him to King Solomon’s Mine. After explaining his predicament, Quatermain persuades them to accompany him on one last journey-a search mission to find a lost city. Together they set out to expedition through unexplored land, setting out from the East African coast into a territory inhabited by a group called the Maasai. Unfortunately, they are not welcomed into this land. While boarding with a Scottish missionary, Mr. Mackenzie, a man from the Maasai group kidnaps Mr. Mackenzie’s daughter. After the man demands the death of one of the explorers as ransom, Curtis, Umslopogaas, Captain Good, and Quatermain decide to ambush the Maasai village in attempts to rescue Mr. Mackenzie’s daughter. As they continue their journey, they must travel through unfamiliar and dangerous land and battle native groups. However, when they finally find the lost civilization they were searching for, the men are surprised when a love triangle emerges and creates more chaos than they have ever faced during their adventures. Described as a fun and exciting read from start to finish, H. Rider Haggard’s Allan Quatermain is a thrilling example of 19th century adventure fiction. Written by an innovator of the genre, Allan Quatermain depicts an exhilarating expedition that keeps even modern readers entertained with drama, wonder, and romance. Continuing the camaraderie and adventure of its predecessor, Allan Quatermain features descriptive and immersive prose with vivid imagery and imagination. This edition of Allan Quatermain by H. Rider Haggard features a new, eye-catching cover design and is printed in a font that is both modern and readable. With these accommodations, Allan Quatermain caters to a contemporary audience while preserving the original innovation and adventure of H. Rider Haggard’s work. show more
