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.

The story 'Black Heart and White Heart' is set in South Africa in the 1870's, in the time of King Cetywayo. But not after a lot of problems and betrayal by someone they trusted. The story is worth reading, it starts a bit slow, but it picks up after a few pages.

Rider Haggard, KBE (/ˈhæɡərd/; 1856 – 1925) was an English writer, largely of adventure fiction, but also of non-fiction. The eighth child of a Norfolk barrister and squire, through family connections he gained employment with Sir Henry Bulwer during the latter's service as lieutenant-governor of Natal, South Africa.

Author(s): H. Rider Haggard. Allan's Wife (Paperback). Published July 1st 2008 by Classic Books Library. Allan's Wife (Hardcover). Published August 1st 2006 by 1st World Library - Literary Society. Paperback, 152 pages. Hardcover, 188 pages.

The World's Desire is a classic fantasy novel first published in 1890 and written by H. Rider Haggard and Andrew Lang. The World's Desire is the story of the hero Odysseus, mainly referred to as the Wanderer for the bulk of the novel. Odysseus returns home to Ithaca after his second, unsung journey. He is hoping to find a home at peace, wife dear and true and his son worthy of him. Unfortunately, he does not find any of the three, instead his home is ravaged by a plague and his wife Penelope has been slain

It may be remembered that in the last pages of his diary, written just before his death, Allan Quatermain makes allusion to his long dead wife, stating that he has written of her fully elsewhere. When his death was known, his papers were handed to myself as his literary executor. Among them I found two manuscripts, of which the following is one. The other is simply a record of events wherein Mr. Quatermain was not personally concerned - a Zulu novel, the story of which was told to him by the hero many years after the tragedy had occurred. But with this we have nothing to do at present.

At 1,918 locations, this isn't the longest work. I look for a stirring adventure yarn from HRH. This was more of a love story/tragedy. The woman raised by baboons is odd, but what is interesting is that HRH is digging into the love of one woman for another. I honestly wonder if he knew what story he was telling there.

There is the amusing bit about the old ruins, that must have been made by a lost white race. Rather amusing at this point.

Another of the original tales of "The Great White Hunter" whos not a bad guy. Stories are set in late 19th century Africa. Truthfully written with no PC, in a better time.

It more of a short story rather than a full novel. We know from reading King Solomon's mines that Allan Quartermain had a son and now we meet his mother. The story involves killer baboons, a wise African witch doctor with a very cool name, a crazy baboon lady and the Lady who becomes Allan's second wife. I enjoyed the story and if you enjoy the stories of Allan Quartermain read this one and best of all it is free.

I ordered this for a friends kindle. She must have liked it as she is an avid reader and I've not heard otherwise. There are many kindle free editions of books and its nice, in this economy, to have access to reading material that is free. Thanks, Amazon, for this service..

I wish I had discovered Haggard long ago. I would has loved these books as a youth. I'm recommending then to my kids.

Excellent tale with many twists & drama.

I initially liked this first of three stories based on the author's Zulu adventures. There was a fair amount of violence, but I was able to skim over the sections that were violent. Then, the story veered into a slaughter of 80 elephants. It was graphic, disgusting, and disturbing. I realize these stories were written in times that were different (late 1800s/early 1900s), but this horrible slaughter of so many beautiful animals in order to secure and sell ivory left me greatly saddened. I was unable to continue on with the book after that. If you are an animal lover, this is not the book for you.
Great
