Publisher's Summary

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.

Henry Rider Haggard, KBE (22 June 1856 – 14 May 1925) was an English writer of adventure novels set in exotic locations, predominantly Africa, and a founder of the Lost World literary genre. He was also involved in agricultural reform around the British Empire. His stories, situated at the lighter end of Victorian literature, continue to be popular and influential.

Best of the Trilogy

Read these as s child and feel in love. This was my least favorite but now realize it is so much more than a prequel. Haggard's most revealing novel; he lets us in on his world view. Th e narration is wonderful as well.

It's not my favorite of the Quartermain story

If you could sum up She And Allan in three words, what would they be?

Eh, uh..., sigh

What other book might you compare She And Allan to and why?

Not sure about this

What three words best describe Barnaby Edwards’s voice?

He did great with both male/female and diversity of voices

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was a little annoyed how Haggard made Quartermain such a staunch disbeliever. He wasn't that bad in any of the other stories when it came to unbelievable things

Any additional comments?

I like it as the story of Quartermain and Umslopogaas' meeting
