The mystery of 'She' continues

This popular work from the 19th and 20th Century is credited by other very well known authors as being an influence on their own works. Graham Green, Henry Miller, J R R Tolkien are among those mentioned in Wikipedia.
'She' is now available to read free online. Having B.J.Harrison read it to me is just wonderful and certainly worth the few dollars asked.
This work also throws some light on the mysterious feminine presence in the male where the feminine is projected outwards onto another almost ageless beautiful and terrible woman.
'She' is really an adventure story. Chests with scrolls, pottery and a letter.A record of a 2000 year search, passed from father to son. Kind of..if you liked Indianna could like this one. Its very British and not politically correct these days and does reveal some of the prevailing bias of the times in which it was written. 'Indianna' would most certainly have read Haggard.

I enjoyed the scenes involving the pillar of fire as these were exciting. There are many exciting moments in this book.
