Finding themselves in deadly peril from that country s cruel king and the evil sorceress who conspires behind his throne, the explorers escape, but what they seek could be the most savage trap of allthe forbidden, impenetrable, and spectacular King Solomon s Mines.

    Recenzii

    My grandfather used to tell me about King Solomon's Mines; how he repeatedly gave up on the book before he was
    eventually won over by this tale of Allan Quatermain, a hunter who leads an expedition in search of a vanished English explorer in the African jungle ... And my grandfather was right: the narrative has all the unstoppable momentum of a charging rhinoceros.

    Textul de pe ultima copertă

    When first published, King Solomon's Mines (1885) was an enormous popular success. The narrative follows the explorations of Allan Quatermain, a fortune hunter who travels to Africa in search of ancient treasures and a lost fellow explorer. Written as an adventure story, the novel is also a late-Victorian imperial romance that illuminates the politics of British imperialist capitalism in 1870s and 1880s South Africa.

    This edition includes contemporary reviews, other writings by Haggard on Africa and romance, and documents focusing on imperialism and diamond mining in late nineteenth-century South Africa.
