Publisher's Description

Touted by its 1885 publisher as “the most amazing story ever written,” King Solomon’s Mines was one of the bestselling novels of the nineteenth century. H. Rider Haggard’s thrilling saga of elephant hunter Allan Quatermain and his search for fabled treasure is more than just an adventure story, though: As Alexandra Fuller explains in her Introduction, in its vivid portrayal of the alliances and battles of white colonials and African tribesmen, King Solomon’s Mines “brings us the world of extremes, of the absurdly tall tales and of the illogical loyalty between disparate people that still informs this part of the world.”

Author Bio

Sir Henry Rider Haggard (1856-1925) was a prolific English writer, who published colorful novels set in unknown regions and lost kingdoms of Africa, or some other corner of the world: Iceland, Constantinople, Mexico, Ancient Egypt. Haggard's best-known work is the romantic adventure tale KING SOLOMON'S MINES (1885), which was inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson' s famous Treasure Island.

Editorial Reviews

“A peculiarly thrilling and vigorous tale of adventure.” —Andrew Lang

    I am very impressed with this author. King Solomon's Mines was the first book I tried by Haggard, and I thought it was probably a guy's book so I wouldn't like it that much. Surprisingly I did-the narrative-style keeps the story moving, and the author picked a topic that hadn't been done to death. And, it's a classic so it's clean, which was definatly a plus.

    This is one of my older son's favorite books. After reading this book he thought Indianna Jones was a whimp. If you want lots of adventure this is the book. I would caution that this book should not be read by younger children due to some violent content. This is a favorite author in our house.
