Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Touted by its 1885 publisher as “the most amazing story ever written,” King Solomons Mines was one of the bestselling novels of the nineteenth century. H. Rider Haggards 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 Solomons 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.”

Synopsis:

The breathless saga that made H. Rider Haggard one of the bestselling novelists of the late nineteenth century, King Solomon's Mines follows the elephant-hunter Allan Quatermain as he searches Africa for fabled treasure, survives harrowing brushes with death, and helps restore a king to his throne. This Modern Library Paperback Classic features period illustrations by Walter Paget, an extensive new notes section, and a reading group guide.
