Hunter Quatermain's Story
Over a century after the dbut of the intrepid hunter explorer Allan Quatermain in King Solomons Mines (1885), he remains one of the great heroes of literature. The most famous of H. Rider Haggards dozen novels about him including Allan Quatermain and Allan and the Ice Gods have been regularly reprinted for new generations of readers. But there is also a novelette, Allan's Wife, and four short stories of his adventures which have never been collected in one volume. Peter Haining at last brings these stories together, introducing the tales with a detailed rsum of the authors life and career from 1856 to his death in 1925. He also supplies a chronology of the fictional explorers life linked to the novels and stories, so that new readers can follow his career to his death in 1885.
