So far, I've read far too many of these Allan Quartermain books by Henry Rider Haggard.
Book 3 of 14 in the Allan Quatermain Series. So far, I've read far too many of these Allan Quartermain books by Henry Rider Haggard. They're sort of like popcorn. Not super good for you, not super filling, but for some reason, it's hard to stop once you start.

This book looks more into the personal side of Allan Quatermain and does so with typical Victorian elegance
Allan does what Allan does best for the first part, which is run around Africa, and deal with animals and miscreants with aplomb. A chunk of this you could be forgiven for thinking you had fallen into a dull Victorian romance. This book looks more into the personal side of Allan Quatermain and does so with typical Victorian elegance. The only problem with the story is that it is so short! Jolly good read!

The World's Desire by H. RICHMOND, . PREFACE The period in which the story of The World's Desire is cast, was a period when, as Miss. The whole world has heard the tale of his first voyage, how he was tossed for ten years on the sea after the taking of Troy, how he reached home at last, alone and disguised as a beggar; how he found violence in his house, how he slew his foes in his own hall, and won his wife again. But even in his own country he was not permitted to rest, for there was a curse upon him and a labour to be accomplished.
My dearest wife's vital energy seemed completely to fail her now thatthe danger was past, and within twelve hours of our return I saw thather state was such as to necessitate the abandonment of any idea ofleaving Babyan Kraals at present. The bodily exertion, the anguish ofmind, and the terror which she had endured during that dreadful night,combined with her delicate state of health, had completely broken herdown. To make matters worse, also, she was taken with an attack offever, contracted no doubt in the unhealthy atmosphere of that accursedvalley.
