    Allan Quatermain, hero of King Solomon's mines, tells a moving tale of his first wife, the Dutch-born Marie Marais, and the adventures that were linked to her beautiful, tragic history. This moving story depicts the tumultuous political era of the 1830s, involving the Boers, French colonists and the Zulu tribe in the Cape colony of South Africa. Hate and suspicion run high between the home government and the Dutch subjects.

    Confusing narration!

    She and Allan is a novel by H. Rider Haggard, first published in 1921. It brought together his two most popular characters, Ayesha from She (to which it serves as a prequel), and Allan Quatermain from King Solomon's Mines. Its significance was recognized by its republication by the Newcastle Publishing Company as the sixth volume of the celebrated Newcastle Forgotten Fantasy Library series in September 1975.

    It's not my favorite of the Quartermain story

    It is a curious thing that at my age, "55 last birthday", I should find myself taking up a pen to try to write a history. I wonder what sort of a history it will be when I have finished it, if ever I come to the end of the trip! I have done a good many things in my life, which seems a long one to me, owing to my having begun work so young, perhaps. At an age when other boys are at school, I was earning my living as a trader in the old colony.

    On an ocean liner bound for Natal, adventurer Alan Quatermain is engaged as a guide. Supplied with arms, courage, and determination, he and his group set out through Africa's beautiful but often dangerous and inhospitable wilderness. Their trek culminates in the discovery of a lost sacred mine that could bring them all riches...or death!

    Great story, well read but audio could be better

    Good classic adventure tale, well read and certainly at a reasonable price. The audio quality is a little muffled, like an old AM radio.

    This great African adventure novel is an enduring favorite among those who love excitement and romance. It is filled with qualities close to the human heart: the spirit of adventure and discovery, the desire for immortality, primal terror, and the search for the primitive. Few knew the Dark Continent as Haggard did; his experience of savage life and wild lands lends a visceral credibility that makes us believe the impossible.
