At the beginning, Quatermain has lost his only son and longs to get back into the wilderness. Having persuaded Sir Henry Curtis, Captain John Good, and the Zulu chief Umslopogas to accompany him, they set out from the coast of east Africa into the territory of the Maasai. While staying with a Scottish missionary, they are attacked by a Maasai group, whom they overcome with heroism. They travel by canoe along an underground river to a lake in the kingdom of Zu-Vendis beyond a range of mountains. The Zu-Vendi are a warlike white race isolated from other African races. At the time of the British party's arrival, they are ruled jointly by two sisters, Nyleptha and Sorais. The priests of the Zu-Vendi religion are hostile to the explorers, but the queens protect them.

Allan Quatermain, sequel to King Solomon's Mines and based on Haggard's own experiences in Africa, was written in just ten weeks in 1885. Once more Alan Quatermain and his companions set out for Africa, this time in search of a white race reputed to live north of Mount Kenia. They survive fierce encounters with Masai warriors, undergo a terrifying subterranean journey, and discover a lost civilization before being caught up in a passionate love-triangle that engulfs the country in a ferocious civil war. The text is that of the first English book edition, with the more important corrections and revisions from the serialization of the novel in Longman's Magazine given in the Explanatory Notes.About the Author:
