The Allan Quatermain Series
by Henry Rider Haggard (Author)
Following a mysterious map of dubious reliability, our hero and a small group of loyal men trek into southern Africa in search of a lost friend – and a lost treasure, the fabled mines of King Solomon. Together 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.
The first great "Lost World" action-adventure series – a precursor to Indiana Jones and a classic tale of bravery and exploration like no other. See also the Ayesha series by H. Rider Haggard.
