King Solomon's Mines Summary

King Solomon's Mines by H. Rider Haggard

When a young explorer goes missing, a search party sets out after him but soon find themselves on the most dangerous journey of their lives, in Haggard's classic adventure tale.

In Haggard's most celebrated and enchanting novel, the reader is taken on a perilous journey into a region of uncharted Africa, led by fortune hunter Allan Quatermain, in search of a young explorer who went missing while on a quest for the fabled King Solomon's diamond mines. Aided only by an ancient map drawn in blood and finding themselves caught up in the middle of a tribal war, the men hold little hope of returning home alive...
