Allan Quatermain is the protagonist of H. Rider Haggard's 1885 novel King Solomon's Mines and its sequels. In King Solomon's Mines, Haggard introduces the reader to Allan Quatermain, now one of the most famous literary adventure characters. Second in the series, this book, Allan Quatermain, continues the story of this daring yet humble man and chronicles in first person (and through correspondence from some of his fictitious companions) his adventures in Africa. Thought to be one of the fictional characters upon which another such person, Indiana Jones, is based, Quatermain is nevertheless a humble man. By his own definition, he is an ". . . 'Adventurer' -- he that goes out to meet whatever may come. Well, that is what we all do in the world one way or another . . ."

From the Back Cover:

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:

Sir Henry Rider Haggard wrote adventure novels set in exotic locations, predominantly Africa, and a pioneer of the Lost World literary genre. He was also involved in agricultural reform throughout the British Empire. His stories, situated at the lighter end of Victorian literature, continue to be popular and influential.
