Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is de Prorok's tale of his archeological expedition into Abyssinia (now called Ethiopia) in 1933-34. Hardly the patient scientist, Prorok tells about raiding tombs, flirting with native women, outrunning murderous warlords, spying on magical cults, and getting hip-deep in political intrigue in one of the wildest places on Earth. This fellow is the real Indiana Jones. This edition contains a historical introduction and extensive footnotes.
